Join us to celebrate the official opening of the 2024 Blak & Bright Literary Festival!

Embark on a thrilling artistic journey with A Daylight Connections’ Kamarra Bell-Wykes and Carly Sheppard as they bring to life an original performance that defies convention. Fueled by the belief that ‘the crazier shit gets, the more sense it makes’, this dynamic duo is on a quest for true artistic self-determination. The artists’ partnership emerged from a collective passion for high-quality, boundary-pushing performance, pushing the limits of what First Nations performance can achieve. We invite you to witness ‘a post-traumatic adventure that transcends boundaries and challenges the very essence of performance art’.

Then… join us for an intimate insight into the literary worlds of two icons, Tony Birch and Kim Scott, who are luminaries in the realm of award-winning writing.
