Live in conversation with Magda Szubanski, hear Grace’s story, in Grace’s words, on Grace’s terms. Sharply intelligent, deeply felt and often blisteringly funny, offering a constructive and optimistic vision for a better future for all of us.
From a young age, her life was defined by uncertainty – by trauma and strength, sadness and hope, terrible lows and wondrous highs. As a teenager she found the courage to speak up after experiencing awful and ongoing child sexual abuse. This fight to find her voice would not be her last.
In 2021 Grace stepped squarely into the public eye as the Australian of the Year, and was the catalyst for a tidal wave of conversation and action. Australians from all walks of life were inspired and moved by her fire and passion. Here she was using her voice, and encouraging others to use theirs too.
Now, celebrate the release of Grace’s memoir The Ninth Life of a Diamond Miner live on stage.
