A beautiful performance from writer and poet, Jazz Money. Working across different mediums, Jazz’s practice is centred around questions of narrative and story – place memory, First Nations memory, colonial memory and the stories that we tell to construct national and personal identity.
Jazz Money is a poet and artist of Wiradjuri heritage, a fresh-water woman currently based on sovereign Gadigal land. Her practice is centred around the written word while producing works that encompass installation, digital, film and print. Jazz’s writing has been widely performed and published nationally and internationally. Her David Unaipon Award-winning debut poetry collection ‘how to make a basket’ was published in 2021 by University of Queensland Press. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
