bendigo writers festival 2016

In 2016, we made
much ado about … everything.

Opening Night On August 12 lined up Ita Buttrose, David Astle, Benjamin Law and Graeme Simsion for a brilliant discussion about creative risk. Saturday Night with Julian Assange was extraordinary and compelling. Closing Concert with Noemi Nadelmann was a fitting end to a packed weekend.

Thankyou to all those who took part, from the writers who spoke so well, to the volunteers who worked so hard, and our audiences, who came from near and far. Our dates for 2017 are August 11 to 13. We look forward to seeing you there.
