Whether you are an emerging or established writer it is important to understand our homeland and the diversity of the characters we develop. This includes voice, world and character development. Through her own stories and journey join Wotobaluk writer Kat Clarke as she delves into the way First Nation writers tell stories and approaches necessary to take when writing stories that reflect Australia and our First Nation Peoples.

Learning Outcomes

  • Cultural awareness and protocols when embarking on a story that has Australian First Nation voices.
  • Examples of First Nation works and the way their stories reflect Australia through characters, time and place.
  • Walking in our shoes- a process that takes the writer through a story and develops a character.
  • Do’s and Don’ts, Links and Resources to engage and research.
  • Sharing through storytelling, a space that is safe and no questions are wrong questions.

About Kat Clarke

Kat Clarke is a proud Wotobaluk writer, consultant, artist and curator from the Wimmera. Graduating from RMIT in Creative writing and majoring in Screenwriting, Kat gradually developed her craft alongside learning the ways of her cultural lore and storytelling from community and Elders dear to her. She continues to acknowledge her teachings by incorporating her own interpretations that speak through different forms of her creative practices. Her skills and knowledge in community engagement, networking, writing, the arts, education and film has led her to collaborate with RMIT, Rag and Bone Man Press, Footscray community arts, the Koorie Heritage Trust, Screen Australia and the Lifted Brow- Blak Brow edition. She consults with multiple creative industries and community organizations ensuring the right cultural processes are upheld, and recently was contracted by ACMI as Assistant First Nations Curator where her contribution has been key throughout the development process.
