Boundless, Australia’s leading festival of Indigenous and culturally diverse Australian writers, will be presented online, 30 October – 1 November

Launched in 2017, Boundless was the first Australian festival to focus on Indigenous and culturally diverse writers. After the success of the 2019 festival, which won FBi Radio’s SMAC award for Sydney’s Best Arts Program, Boundless is back in 2021, with a new approach to programming.

This year’s festival is 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.

The festival will bring together established writers and emerging voices, giving space to writing in many forms. Authors, writers for performance, journalists, poets and interdisciplinary practitioners will come together to discuss the important issues of our times and the value of story.

Boundless is a free festival so that as many people as possible are able to discover these amazing writers. The all-day event will include readings, panel discussions, and interactive experiences. 

Boundless is presented by Writing NSW and Bankstown Arts Centre. The festival is supported by Create NSW and the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund.

The festival will be presented online, 30 October – 1 November
