For Melbourne Now, the Wheeler Centre and NGV come together for an afternoon of art and storytelling.

Hear from writers Anna Emina El Samad, Maya Hodge and Susie Anderson as they share readings responding to the work of Melbourne Now artists Mia Boe, Deanna Hitti and Kelly Koumalatsos.

The artists themselves will then take the stage to discuss the experience of creating work in Melbourne/Naarm that captures their own varied and rich cultural ancestries and heritages, along with host Myles Russell-Cook, Senior Curator of Australian and First Nations Art, NGV.

Presented in partnership with the Wheeler Centre.
