Opening Night: Speaking Truth to Power

How loud are the lies of the powerful, yet how strong are the voices speaking truth? In honour of the stories that have been silenced and those who will not let them be lost, we open the festival by reflecting on the practice of truth-telling.

Includes the announcement of the recipients of the Monash Undergraduate Prize for Creative Writing.

With Paola Balla and Vicki Couzens

Beats by Soju Gang

Hosted by Izzy Roberts-Orr
