Presented by: Melbourne Fringe
In Association With: Witness Performance
Are adults really the right people to assess and review theatre for children? Should children be part of the conversation? And if so, how do we include their voices?
Join Witness Performance’s Alison Croggon and Robert Reid and others for a wide-ranging discussion on making and critiquing culture for children.
What began as a set of short stories meant to inspire his son to read turned into the mega-series Ranger's Apprentice for the internationally-adored John Flanagan. He talks with Adele Walsh from State Library of Victoria about the worlds he creates, and a life spent conjuring up spectacular books that grip readers from the first page.

Adele Walsh and Kelly Gardiner host Unladylike, a podcast that talks about women and writing. Their manifesto is no limits, to genre, or experience, so it's about sharing ideas that might not be heard in the mainstream. Miffy Farquharson talks to these two talented, energetic women, to find out where it started and their advice for wannabe podcasters.
