Brisbane 2019 Women in Exile

Sat 24 Aug, 10am–11am
Judith Wright Centre Theatre Rehearsal Space 

In partnership with Queensland Poetry Festival.

A discussion between Saba Vasefi, Ruby Hamad, Fazileh Mansour Beigi and Sammaneh Poursh. Part panel and part poetry reading, this vital conversation between journalists, refugees, feminists, poets and scholars sheds light on the institutional bias that is still subtly working to exclude women of colour.
