SCHOOL PROGRAM: WORDS CHANGE LIVES
Recommended for: Secondary Years 7-10
Poet, artist, playwright, educator, novelist – these are just some of the many hats worn by Gunai woman Kirli Saunders. Named NSW Aboriginal Woman of the Year in 2020, Kirli is an internationally-recognised award-winning writer of plays, poetry and picture books, who has worked with communities to create poetry in First Languages. Her books include adult poetry collection Kindred and her latest, the upcoming children’s novel in verse, Bindi.
Kirli will be joined by linguist, educator and author Aunty Fay Muir for an inspiring conversation about following your passion and exploring different forms of writing and expression to make sense of the world around us and the deep emotions that unite us all.
All Word for Word Festival Schools Program sessions are FREE for schools to attend, but places are limited. To register a school, grade or class contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
