Super excited to be on this panel for Footscray Community Arts’ West Writers Forum! The panel is called Danger Asians and here’s a great write up (in which I talk about Pauline Hanson, power dynamics in arts and literary industries, growing up Aboriginal-Chinese and then becoming Muslim).
“It’s about tastemaking. If the people who curate festivals, who put on events, who edit mainstream publications, if they continue to be predominantly white men, you’re never going to have the diversity because they’re never going to be as attuned to the work of Asian writers.”
