Highlight & Performance

Closing Night: Stay Gold

The sun is setting on the Emerging Writers’ Festival 2019. Celebrate the twilight hour with us in a wild and immersive evening of literature, performance and dance set amidst shimmering visions of speculative futures.

Featuring live art, installation and a suite of surprises, followed by a dynamite dancefloor curated by the masterminds behind Precog, Kōtare (fka DJ Sezzo) and Matka.

Find our what’s in store for your future with Tarot readings by Georgia Kartas and contribute your own vision of what is next to come in the Future Booth, run by Bethany Atkinson-Quinton and featuring work from interstate artists Zenobia Frost, Ella Jeffery and Mitch Tomas Cave.

We hope to see you dressed to impress and sparkling in gold as we go down swinging after another year! Don’t worry – we will have some extra shimmer on hand for you too.

Readings by  Manisha Anjali, Eugen Bacon, Shel Calopa, SJ Finch, Trixi Rosa, Gabrielle Ryan and Jasmine Waiters

Hosted by Emily Munro-Harrison
