A Hill To Die On – Be Hear Now Live Music Festival Fringe

tile image

Nathan Curnow’s latest book launch with live music guest appearance by Geoffrey Williams.

A Hill to Die On explores the ancient, everyday experience of promise, followed by the return back into despair. It’s the personal account of a poet living in the profound joy and frailty of language. Drawing on narrative, myth and fable, Nathan Curnow’s first collection in eight years connects the ongoing saga of hope to the events of his own life, one that’s ever creative, lyrical and full of broken lines.

Come along to hear readings from Nathan’s work and a creative musical response from Geoffrey.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
