The NT Writers Festival (NTWF) is a four-day festival shaped by place that speaks to and from the heart of Australia and the Northern Territory. Founded in 1999, the Festival embraces our country's cultural and linguistic diversity, and has hosted some of Australia’s most distinguished writers, thinkers and storytellers.
In 2020, NTWF returns to Darwin to take place in a new venue - the beautiful purpose-built event facilities at the lush George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens.
This year's Festival theme - ‘Gunamidirra garawa birditj | when the tides turn' - will explore our moments of change. In Gulumerrdjin, Larrakia country, the sea and rivers reach onto the land. Places flux with cycles of monsoon and dry. How are we made and remade? What can we change and what do we hold on to? How do we hold loss alongside possibility?
Join writers, artists and storytellers for a four-day celebration of books, language and stories that asks us to consider the marks we leave behind, and how we face and create change.
