NT Writers Festival

NT Writers Festival

Starts: Friday, 24 June 2022, 12:00 am
Ends: Sunday, 26 June 2022, 12:00 am
The 2022 NT Writers Festival returns to beautiful Larrakia land for four days of talks, readings and immersive events that celebrate story, language, ideas and culture shaped by place. Bringing people together to share stories, NTWF connects the best of NT writing with diverse voices from across the country. This year join a brilliant line-up of writers and thinkers as they explore the theme of balarr, catching the light. In Larrakia, balarr means ‘to light up’ or ‘to become light’. In the Top End, in Saltwater Country, we are surrounded by spectacular displays of light – radiant sunsets, glistening waterfalls, dramatic lightning storms. To catch the light is both a pursuit and a fleeting moment that might only briefly illuminate the darkness. In times of multiple crises – ecological, political, social – how can we find, and hold onto, glimmers of hope? How can we shed light on those parts of the past that have been forgotten or concealed? And what sparks might inspire a brighter future? NTWF 2022 is taking place at the Museum and Art Gallery of the NT and other special venues around Garrmalang | Darwin. The full program goes on sale in mid-May, but keep an eye out on our social and website for line-up announcements, early bird passes and special offers.

Common Times acknowledges the traditional owners, first storytellers and custodians of the land we live on. We pay our respects to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their ongoing connection to land, sea, and community. Their sovereignty was never ceded.
