Dialogues at the Castlemaine state festival

Castlemaine Festival

Event Date: 
19 March 2021 to 4 April 2021
Author / Presenters: 
Speakers include Don Watson, Helen Garner, Gareth Evans, Carly Findlay, Tim Costello, Michael Rowland and more.

The Castlemaine state festival is a melting pot of music, art, theatre, film and – with its five-day writers’ festival – literature. Against the backdrop of Castlemaine’s stunning botanical gardens, Dialogues’ presentations, debates and panels will be led by leaders in Australian literature, politics and society. With Helen Garner discussing the art of memoir writing, environmentalist Paul Hawken speaking on climate action, and Tim Costello opening up a conversation about Australia’s role aiding third-world countries, Dialogues is not just about books, but ideas.
