Chelsea Watego: Another Day in the Colony

Sun 11 Sep, 4.30pm

The debut essay collection of prolific writer and esteemed public intellectual Chelsea Watego, Another Day in the Colony examines the ongoing daily racism faced by First Nations peoples in so-called Australia. A Munanjahli and South Sea Islander woman with over 20 years of experience working in Indigenous health, Watego expertly dismantles white colonial fictions, celebrates the power of community and defines a future unlike anything the settlers could ever imagine. Watego discusses her urgent, insightful and joyous collection with Gunai/Kurnai, Gunditjmara, Wiradjuri and Yorta Yorta writer Nayuka Gorrie.
