Disability justice offers an opportunity to think beyond our existing structures and movements. Where have the models of rights and reform failed to take us? Where can we go instead? In this panel Brooke Scobie, Margot Beavon-Collin and Robin Eames will discuss radical action and imagination, politics of solidarity, and the use of writing and art in movement work. How can we materially work towards a better world to live in, and what will it take to get us there?

The National Young Writers’ Festival is a non-profit organisation made by and for young artists to help foster a sense of community and allow young writers to connect, share skills and hone their craft. We pride ourselves on paying all writers programmed for the festival but we are reliant on government funding and philanthropic support to make our festival happen. Your donation allows us to continue supporting young artists, increase the number of writers we are able to program, and improve our capacity and resources to hold high quality events.
NYWF is a registered non-profit, so your donation (above $2) is also tax-deductible.
