Crossing the Great Divide
Bendigo Writers Festival
Artist Rod Moss has told his story in three masterpieces of memoir: The Hard Light of Day: An Artist’s Story of Friendships in Arrernte Country, A Thousand Cuts and now, Crossing the Great Divide. How did a boy from suburban Melbourne develop a fierce hunger for physical, intellectual, artistic and spiritual experience? Raimond Gaita talks with Rod about the travel that also enabled him to cross the great divide between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians. What does it mean to Rod to have found acceptance in his life with the Arrernte people of the Northern Territory?
