The Art House Wyong is thrilled to announce a partnership with Words on the Waves Writers Festival to host their 2023 Opening Address.
Words on the Waves is a not-for-profit organisation, and the Central Coast’s first – and only – writer’s festival. This event will feature three exciting and celebrated Australian writers as they ponder the Festival theme “the mind swims”.
Set in the intimate ArtHouse black box studio, this panel of writers are sure to send your mind on a journey. Wirlomin Noongar woman Claire G. Coleman (Lies, Damned Lies) bears witness to the ways in which water forms her identity. Multiple Walkley award-winning journalist Tracey Spicer AM dives into the exciting and terrifying world of artificial intelligence (and its inherent bias, explored in her new book Man-Made). And Diana Reid, whose debut Love & Virtue blitzed the charts and awards lists, freestyles through the art of writing.
“the mind swims” denotes a state of restless inquiry, of roving exploration, both real and metaphysical. It speaks to transitions: the rise and fall of the tides; from one phase of life to the next; from one way of being to another.
Authors will be conducting book signings in the foyer post-show.
