The 2014 Perth Festival is well underway, but we are looking forward to getting amongst it this weekend and early next week. First up is the Perth Writers Festival, kicking off on Thursday, with Yijala Yala Project’s Stu Campbell and Tyson Mowarin from Weerianna Street Media appearing at two awesome-sounding sessions. The first is ‘Graphic Detail’ on Saturday February 22nd, which looks at the transition of the graphic novel into the digital age. Then on Sunday the 23rd the guys will join a discussion about Indigenous story tellers using diverse media to record traditional stories in ‘Paper and Glass’. Click through the links to book a place if you’re able to make it.

And then on Monday, it’s the INDIGital symposium,┬ábringing together indigenous practitioners in the creative industries, along with non-indigenous practitioners interested in collaborations which bring indigenous stories to the world. Registrations have closed for the symposium, but keep an eye on social media to see how the conversation unfolds.
