Poetry has always been a language of resistance and activism, requiring true courage to write and speak it, and sometimes bearing the highest and enduring costs.

Hosted by Francesca Sasnaitis, The Big Brave Read examines the themes of our Literature & Ideas program – Land Money Sex Power – through poets Patrick Gunasekera, Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa, Zainab Syed, Omar Sakr, David Stavanger and Anne-Marie Te Whiu reading both their own poems and those of others.

Presented by Australian Poetry and the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund.
