The first-ever festival focused on Indigenous and culturally diverse Australian writers and writing.
Boundless is a biennial festival for Indigenous and culturally diverse writers presented by NSW Writers’ Centre and Bankstown Arts Centre, in collaboration with Sweatshop. The online event includes performances, readings and panel discussions Boundless is a free festival, so that as many people as possible are able to attend.
“By some measures, Australia is one of the most multicultural nations on the planet,” says Boundless speaker Benjamin Law. “We have over 300 languages spoken in our homes, one in 30 of us are Indigenous and half of us were either born overseas or have at least one migrant parent. Boundless is a showcase of those voices.”
Boundless 2021, will be held from 30 October – 1 November, online. The festival will be curated by the emerging curators selected for Writing NSW’s development program: Zohra Aly, Annie Brockenhuus-Schack and Tina Huang, under the guidance of Sisonke Msimang, curator of the literature and ideas program at Perth Festival.
