Adelaide Writers' Week Opening Event
The Only Constant
Chigozie Obioma, Sanam Maher & Tyson Yunkaporta
In an era characterised by fast-paced fluidity, our 2020 Opening Event invites us to reflect on the only constant in a world both unsettled and unsettling: change.
Join three of this year’s most fascinating authors as they delve into their individual areas of interest and expertise and offer insight into different times, cultures and countries and the impact on each of the constant change of our fluid times.
Named one of 100 Global Thinkers by Foreign Policy magazine, Nigerian author Chigozie Obioma’s latest novel, An Orchestra of Minorities, is his second to be shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize.
Sanam Maher is a Pakistani journalist whose book A Woman Like Her explores the intersection of gender, class and today’s networked world, and its impact on women in Pakistan.
Tyson Yunkaporta is an academic, arts critic, and researcher who belongs to the Apalech Clan in Far North Queensland. Sand Talk is described as a guide to how Indigenous thinking can save the world: Tyson calls it an adventure into a world of thought experiments conducted by those with unconventional points of view.
