Join Wingara Mura Visiting Indigenous Writers’ Program for what promises to be a very special reading by two of Australia’s most exciting new Aboriginal poets.
Dr Natalie Harkin is a Narungga woman and activist-poet from South Australia. She is a DECRA Research Fellow at Flinders University with an interest in decolonising state archives, currently engaging archival-poetic methods to research and document Aboriginal women’s domestic service and labour histories in SA. Her words have been installed and projected in exhibitions comprising text-object-video projection, including collaboration with the Unbound Collective. She has written for Overland, Southerly, TEXT and Cordite, and her first poetry book, Dirty Words, was published by Cordite Books in 2015.
Evelyn Araluen is a poet and educator working with Indigenous literatures at the University of Sydney. Her writing has won the Nakata Brophy Prize for Young Indigenous Writers, the Judith Wright Poetry Prize, and has appeared in publications such as Overland, Southerly, Cordite, and Peril. Born, raised and writing on Dharug country she is a Bundjalung descendant.
