Bimblebox 153 Birds @ Brisbane Writers Festival

Brisbane Writers Festival program

Bimblebox 153 Birds is a creative exploration of the bird species that inhabit the Bimblebox Nature Refuge.  With spoken word, music and fine art prints, 153 artists, 153 writers and 153 musicians engage with the bird species that make this habitat their home — a habitat that is currently under threat from coal mining.

Poet Kristin Hannaford wrote two poems for the Australian Bustard.  While Boyd invited all the 153 musicians to record a bird call interpretation for the Australian Bustard.  You can view both of these poems and hear one of Boyd’s Bustard compilations in Plumwood Mountain volume 2, Number 1.
