Writings from the Dark

Writings from the Dark is a series of six short powerful poetry recitals from acclaimed writer and performer Steven Oliver.

The poems were originally written for broadcast on Brisbane Indigenous Media Association’s FM and digital radio services.

The video series breathes new life into each poem, featuring Steven reciting each poem direct to camera and transposes text and images around Steven’s portrait.

Writings from the Dark enabled Brisbane Indigenous Media Association to partner new Indigenous trainees with Steven to learn on the job while producing the series.

The grant helped Brisbane Indigenous Media Association to produce the series for broadcast in remote Indigenous communities via ICTV.

 

“… so question yourself. Challenge ideals, start a revolution. Are you a part of this country’s problem or the solution.”
