When We Talk About HomeSat 31 Aug, 7pm
SLV, Village Roadshow Theatrette
‘Home’ is a word that can mean many things – a place, a feeling, a sense of anchoring to the world. Cli-fi aficionado Hannah Donnelly, Australian Burmese Rohingya Organization founder Habiburahman, award-winning writer Alice Pung, and author Carrie Tiffany allow us inside their hearts to see theirs.
Hannah Donnelly is a writer who explores Indigenous futures, speculative fiction and responses to climate trauma. Her recent work has appeared in Sovereign Words: Indigenous Art, Curation and Criticism, Office of Contemporary Art Norway (2018), ‘Reading Victoria’ Melbourne City of Literature (2018), Acclaim Issue 38 (2018) and more.
Habiburahman lives and works as an interpreter and social worker in Melbourne. He founded the Australian Burmese Rohingya Organization to advocate for his community.
Alice Pung is an award-winning Melbourne writer whose books include Unpolished Gem, Her Father's Daughter, Laurinda, On John Marsden and Close to Home.
