MIDDLE FINGERS UP
Kin presents a spoken word event, Middle Fingers Up.
As part of the Peter Waples-Crowe exhibition, insideOUT.
Sick of the settler state running its mouth and enforcing the heteropatriarchy?
Come hear local Aboriginal poets bring a little of their inside’s out with open hearts and fingers up.
Curated by Laniyuk.
Laniyuk was born of a French mother and a Larrakia, Kungarrakan and Gurindji father. Her poetry and short memoir often reflects the intersectionality of her cross cultural and queer identity. She was fortunate enough to contribute to the book Colouring the Rainbow: Blak Queer and Trans Perspectives as well as winning the Indigenous residency for Canberra’s Noted Writers Festival 2017. Laniyuk received Overland’s Writers Residency for 2018 as well as being shortlisted for Overland’s 2018 Nakata-Brophy poetry prize.
