Cause for hope: notes from the NT Writers Festival

‘Returning’ – in Arrernte, ‘lyapirtneme’ – something growing back, like new shoots after fire: this was the theme of the NT Writers Festival that took place over the weekend. But how much renewal can there be when the pressures are immense?  KIERAN FINNANE found some resilient and optimistic responses.

Dream of home

p2540 Dream of Home SM


"Walking and travelling is a human habit and so is the making of shelters and dreaming of a safe place to call home.  A place from which creation might emanate." CRAIG SAN ROQUE reflects on Dream of Home, an exhibition by by Jennifer Taylor.

"This is what the world aspires to have,” said Abe Nouk,  Sudanese-born now Australian spoken word artist, one of the festival's guests. KIERAN FINNANE reports.

'Anyone who held violent opinions could always be trusted'


Thucydides on the state of politics in his times shows that everything changes yet nothing changes, writes CRAIG SAN ROQUE in a Letter to the Editor.


'Show me another way to live'



"Now we were being called to go with Persephone on another journey, into the realm of death and back again, to life." KIERAN FINNANE in words and FIONA WALSH in images respond to a second encounter with the ancient Greek story revisioned for our place and times by Craig San Roque.

Cultural drawcards – lessons for Alice from MONA?



The Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Hobart has become the second-most visited attraction in Tasmania, with its MOFO festival adding to the draw. In the eclectic line-up this year was Alice author CRAIG SAN ROQUE. He gives his impressions.


What life do we choose?



Two former Central Australian residents, Cait Wait and Kerrie Nelson, have come back to show a collaborative art and poetry exhibition as a homage to their homeground of 20 years ago. CRAIG SAN ROQUE reflects on their achievement in A Chosen Life.

The Centre's winning literature




Alice Springs author Rod Moss has won the Chief Minister’s Book of the Year Award for his memoir, One Thousand Cuts, while the graphic novel, The Long Weekend in Alice Springs, by Craig San Roque and Joshua Santospirito won the Non-Fiction Book Award.

Passing through light and time




Rodd Moss may mostly paint by the hard light of day, but the retrospective at Araluen covering his work in Alice Springs over three decades opened by candlelight and in an atmosphere of reverence. Why did this feel so fitting and potent? asks KIERAN FINNANE.
