Humanity has cut itself off from the Earth, leading to our present crisis.
Poets Brian Walters and Mark Tredinnick will explore the way poetry can help us reconnect to the planet that sustains us.
‘In wildness,’ wrote Thoreau, ‘is the preservation of the world.’ In poetry is the conservation—within oneself and in the natural world—of the wildness all life depends on.
Celebrated Australian poet Mark Tredinnick, along with fellow poet Brian Walters, will talk about the poetry of landscape – inner as well as outer – and read poems about the environment, paying tribute to the poets and nature writers who inspire them.
This performance aims to inspire and encourage participants to engage with the inner and outer landscape, and the challenges we now face.
