Letters of Farewell

Letters of Farewell

In this rapidly changing world, what will you miss?

Consider what you would miss if the world keeps changing.

Inspired by Farewell to Paper, we’re inviting Western Australian students to pen a letter to ‘What I will miss’.

Remember a life without smartphones or tablets? When mail meant a handwritten letter and you planned a trip with a map not an app? We’re saying goodbye to paper in our lives and it’s happening so fast we’re not stopping to think about its significance.

Inspired by this humorous lament for a tactile, sensory world that is lost, Evgeny Grishkovets’ Farewell to Paper gives paper, and everything it represents, a proper send off.

Put pen to paper and hand write an old-fashioned letter to ‘What I will miss’. Send it to us at Perth Festival – in an envelope, with a stamp! Our postal address is:

Perth Festival Letters of Farewell
M418 . The University of Western Australia
3 Crawley Ave . Crawley  WA  6009

The letters received will be curated, collated and displayed during Perth Festival 2018 as a record of our changing world and a tribute to the things we still value.
