One Voice – Kim Scott in conversation with Gillian O’Shaughnessy

The year 2020 has been a time of chaos and uncertainty. It began in Australia with raging wildfires and devastating floods. The pandemic followed. In this conversation with Gillian O’Shaughnessy, award-winning Noongar author Kim Scott reflects on what 2020 has meant to him, and why Aboriginal heritage and the natural environment need to be at the centre of national reconstruction.

‘One Voice’ by Scott is published in Fire Flood Plague (2020), an anthology of essays by Australian writers edited by Sophie Cunningham.

The event is hosted by Writing WA as part of the Literature Live Around the World program created by the Bergen International Literature Festival.

Literature Live Around the World will be live streamed from 7pm on Friday 12th and out event with Kim will be streamed live, from 8pm, on Vimeo.  You can also join the live chat here.

Full program details for Literature Live Around the World are available on the Lit Fest Bergen website.

One Voice will be filmed/streamed from the State Library of WA. We thank the Library for this generous support.
