In an era of climate crisis, we consider ways to protect land and Country. Campaigns to confront climate change speak of renewable energy sources and an ending of fossil fuel mining. But what of the inherent values of Country? Are we humble enough to accept its right to autonomy? 2022 Festival Guest Curator Tony Birch (Whisper Songs) sits down with three First Nations poets – Jazz Money (how to make a basket), Anne-Marie Te Whiu (Solid Air) and Evelyn Araluen (Dropbear) – who have woven images and stories that engage with the authority of Country and our place in it.
