Hear from the winner of the 2022 Stella Prize, Evelyn Araluen, who took home the award for her groundbreaking poetry collection, Dropbear. Described by 2022 Stella Prize judge Melissa Lucashenko as "a breathtaking collection of poetry and short prose which arrests key icons of mainstream Australian culture and turns them inside out," Dropbear has received broad praise for its fierce, witty critique of Australia's fantasy of its own racial and environmental innocence. Evelyn is joined on stage by Melissa Lucashenko for what promises to be a rich, intimate discussion on poetry, connection to Country and the role of the arts in society.
