Welcome to Country (Launch)

  • presented by:

Thursday 3 October , 3:00 pm – 4.00pm

  • Free
  • Special Event

As we gather on the lands of the Awabakal and Worimi peoples, we take a moment to recognise the unceded lands upon which we meet and the unbroken storytelling of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in this country. Provided by a local Aboriginal community elder.

Are you coming?

Our festival is 100% free. It’s always free. But this year, National Young Writers’ Festival is asking for you to register for the festival. Registering for our festival means you can help us maintain and secure our ongoing funding. We rely on funding to provide this opportunity to artists and audiences. We need to understand who exactly we provide this opportunity to.

Can you support NYWF?

During registration, you’ll see an opportunity to buy a NYWF supporter ticket. If you love our festival, we encourage to help support our festival by becoming an NYWF supporter. The “ticket” doesn’t get you into anything extra, it’s a contribution to support the ongoing running costs of our festival: which is 100% free to attend!
