Welcome to In Other Words - OzAsia Festival’s forum for conversations about Australia’s engagement with Asia in the largest dedicated showcase for Asian and Asian Australian writers and thinkers.
On the banks of the River Torrens, novelists, poets, performers, journalists, historians and playwrights will come together to consider topics as varied as power, identity, community, grief, familial love, shopping malls, ghosts, snacks, resistance and, of course, revenge.
Program Curator: Laura Kroetsch
Guest Curators: Benjamin Law and Roanna Gonsalves
Full program announced September.
"OzAsia Festival is a brilliant celebration of Asian Australian culture and a community whose presence here pre-dates white arrival. It’s also a brilliant opportunity to take stock of Australia's place in the Asia Pacific, and have some of the most urgent conversations about our shared futures"
- Benjamin Law
"Everybody needs good neighbours. But what if the neighbours are also family, united and divided by two continents, two oceans and one big virus? In Other Words brings together the world's most exciting contemporary writers who live and love in Asia and Australia as they engage in vital conversations about the churn of our histories, our present longings and our interdependent futures".
- Roanna Gonsalves
