About the Program
During 2020-21, Perth Festival, with Seesaw Magazine, began a pilot program developing reviewing skills with Aboriginal writers and artists. This included Michelle White, Zac James, Bruce Denny, Juanita Spedding, Barbara Hostalek, Trevor Ryan, Simone Detourbet and Kobi Morrison.
In 2022 we are running a new program for Aboriginal artists and writers, with mentoring by Michelle White. They will attend a series of visual and performance works and facilitated yarning sessions. Participants are Joshua Pether, Bobbi Henry and Narelle Thorn.
In addition, Perth Festival is hosting a Reflecting and Dreaming day in March 2022 that brings past participants and key stakeholders together to consider the future of this program.
