The Two Fires Festival Committee is delighted to confirm that Humphrey McQueen will deliver the Judith Wright Address at this year’s Festival. Humphrey is a Canberra-based writer and historian, who has for sixty years engaged in struggles for social equality. Decades ago he joined with Judith Wright and many others in environmental activism to save the Great Barrier Reef, then under threat from drilling. They were successful.
The Judith Wright Address will take place in St Bede’s Hall on Saturday 6th April, after the Festival Opening Ceremony and Welcome to Country.
