SYDNEY WRITERS’ FESTIVAL STUDENT SESSIONS

 

NESA is once again collaborating with the Sydney Writers’ Festival to present the 2019 Student Sessions program.

This year’s line-up is led by acclaimed writers, award-winning artists, respected social commentators and thought-leaders.

Linked to the NSW school curriculum, the sessions will stimulate and engage students with ideas outside the traditional classroom setting.

This is an exciting opportunity for both teachers and students to join some of the biggest stars on the festival program for a thought-provoking program of talks, specially curated to deepen engagement with the school curriculum in ways that inform, challenge and inspire.

When: Wednesday 1 May, 2019

 Where: Carriageworks, 245 Wilson Street, Eveleigh
