I.C.E and Sweatshop Western Sydney presents Jazz Money

Posted by I.C.E | Nov 24, 2021

Authors Jazz Money and Sara M. Saleh discuss the themes of Money’s latest collection, how to make a basket.
Simmering with protest and boundless love, Jazz Money’s David Unaipon Award-winning collection, how to make a basket, examines the tensions of living in the Australian colony today. By turns scathing, funny and lyrical, Money uses her poetry as an extension of protest against the violence of the colonial state, and as a celebration of Blak and queer love. Deeply personal and fiercely political, these poems attempt to remember, reimagine and re-voice history.

Writing in both Wiradjuri and English language, Money explores how places and bodies hold memories, and the ways our ancestors walk with us, speak through us and wait for us.

I.C.E. will be co-hosting the in-person event with its friends at Sweatshop Western Sydney on Saturday December 4. The discussion will be chaired by Sara M. Saleh, Arab-Australian human rights activist, poet and campaigner for refugee rights and racial justice.
