Speaking to us.
Leading us on the path to knowledge of culture, of Country.
Listen encourages the reader to reflect on the importance of listening and truth-telling in response to Australia’s complex history. The poetic writing style creates a rich and respectful text, and the bright colours inject a sense of joy into a text that explores what is often a painful history. The use of traditional First Nations techniques reinforces the longevity and importance of a culture that has lived on Australian land for over 65,000 years.
