In three separate sessions, we feature three clear-eyed non-fiction thinkers. Each will take to the stage for an hour to riff on a theme and throw down the gauntlet.

Power: Maria Tumarkin is one of Australia’s foremost writers of non-fiction.  She has written four books – the latest of which  - Axiomatic – was shortlisted for the Stella Prize in 2019.   In this special talk, Tumarkin offers us a sense of what it means to have and to hold power in these dark times.  Tumarkin is an honest and serious speaker and her commentary is full of a humility and wit that make her a must-see guest at this year’s festival. 

Unmoderated is a mini-lecture series set to provoke and challenge. Be prepared to have bubbles burst and your preconceptions unsettled
