Captioned and Auslan
Nothing is off-limits in this conversation between these two incredible writers whose work challenges us with the hard questions about racism and misogyny today.
One of the strongest voices of American feminism in recent years, Roxane Gay, returns to the Sydney Opera House and All About Women to engage with the Gamilaroi/Torres Strait Islander woman, playwright, actor and screenwriter Nakkiah Lui. Both known for speaking with radical authenticity about their own experiences of racism, misogyny, and trauma, expect razor-sharp commentary on issues such as young women's personal testimonies disclosing violence and sexual assault, the Black Lives Matter movement, and how these issues play out differently for Black women in the US and First Nations and other women of colour in Australia.
It's all up for discussion - even personal likes and grievances, and the life of writing and creativity - so don't miss this exclusive, intimate conversation.
