📍 BENDIGO BANK THEATRE AT THE CAPITAL
👤 Timmah Ball, Jeanine Leane and Ellen Van Neerven

Jeanine Leane’s collection of poetry, Walk Back Over, is an invitation to listen to the past, to walk back over it, to “see what you missed the first time”. The Reconciliation Walk was one way for Australians to revisit a past that needs remembering, but this way of walking must be learned and practised, if we are to understand our history.Timmah Ball talks with Jeanine and fellow poet Ellen Van Neerven, about the “act of remembering” that is writing poetry.
