Boundless 2023: A Home of One’s Own

Wednesday 27 September, 6.30pm

A Home of One’s Own: Writers on the Housing Crisis

Australia’s housing crisis is a major topic of discussion right now, but there’s not enough talk about how it impacts our mental health. When housing is unaffordable, insecure, overcrowded, or even dangerous, it can have dire consequences for our health.

Join author and city-maker Jess Scully, writer and poet Mohammad Awad, Shelter NSW Planning Officer Stacey Miers and moderator Dominic Santangelo for a panel discussion on the housing crisis, and the power of words and lived experience to affect change.

At The Joan, Penrith on Wednesday 27 September, 6.30pm.

This Boundless Festival 2023 event is run by Writing NSW, with support from The Joan, Penrith.

‘A Home of One’s Own: Writers on the Housing Crisis’ is curated by Alejandra Martinez, one of our emerging curators for this year’s Boundless festival. Read about our 2023 curators.

The Boundless program gives emerging literary curators from First Nations or culturally diverse backgrounds the experience of programming an individual event in our 2023 event series. The festival will bring together established writers and emerging voices, giving space to writing in many forms.
