Tuncks Rd, Mparntwe/Alice Springs

The NT Writers Festival returns to the glorious Olive Pink Botanic Gardens in Mparntwe/Alice Springs for four days of inspiring talks, performances, readings, storied walks and immersive experiences celebrating language, culture and community shaped by place.

The theme for the 2021 Festival is anpernirrentye | everything is connected. This draws from the Arrernte concept of anpernirrentye, the Arrernte relationship system, which describes the way in which everything is connected to everything else – people, animals, land, language and culture. Last year, our interconnectedness with the larger web of life was illuminated like never before, as we reckoned with firestorms, floods and a global pandemic, and felt the fragility of the systems we depend upon.

Join a brilliant line-up of writers from the NT and beyond, including Alice Pung, Craig Silvey, Nardi Simpson, Rick Morton, Laura Jean McKay and many more, to explore the theme of anpernirrentye and the connections between all things.
