The Big Anxiety Speaker Series - Writing the Future of Health

A showcase of writers with disability share works that reimagine and write towards a better and more inclusive future of health.

Location: The Wheeler Centre

As part of The Big Anxiety Festival, RMIT Culture is proud to be partnering with The Wheeler Centre to bring you this showcase event featuring an assembly of writers living with disabilities. Curated by award-winning poet Andy Jackson, they’ll share their visions for what the future of health can and should be, through performance, poetry, essay and memoir.

Featuring writers such as Alex Creece, Anna Jacobson, Beau Windon, Gemma Mahadeo and Sarah Stivens, immerse yourself in creative explorations of ableism, love, shame, solidarity, ingenuity and more, while imagining a better and more inclusive future of health.

This event will also be live-streamed, viewable on the Wheeler Centre website from 6.30pm on Monday 3 October.
