NTWF 2022 EOIs Open
In 2022 NTWF returns to lush Larrakia land for four inspiring days of talks, events and storied walks from 23-26 June at the Museum and Art Gallery of the NT (MAGNT) in Darwin.
This year’s Festival theme is balarr | catching the light. In Larrakia, balarr means ‘to light up’ or ‘to become light’. In the Top End, in Saltwater Country, we are surrounded by spectacular displays of light – radiant sunsets, glistening waves and waterfalls, dramatic lightning storms. Catching the light is a pursuit and also a fleeting moment that might only briefly illuminate the darkness. In times of multiple crises – ecological, political, social – how can we find, and hold onto, glimmers of hope? How can we shed light on those parts of the past that have been forgotten or concealed? And what sparks might inspire a brighter future?
With thanks to Aunty Bilawara Lee for working with us to translate this year’s theme into Larrakia language.
Expressions of interest for NT authors to participate in NTWF 2022 are now open. If you would like to submit an EOI, please download and read the guidelines before sending your EOI to email@example.com by midnight Fri 4 Feb with the subject heading ‘EOI: NT Writers Festival.’
