BL.INK black ink: 82: a year of HINDERpendence

Blink New

This event is now in the past.

Look out! It’s a deadly night of BL.INK: black ink at The Library Café!

Join us once a month for a night of performance as Indigenous creators share their stories, new works and dealings of blackness.

Hosted by Steven Oliver, BL.INK will feature performances by Sean Dow, Kaylah Tyson and Yvette Walker.

Don’t be shame … be game!

82: a year of HINDERpendence
In 1982, the then Premier Joh Bjelke-Petersen declared all political protests and slogans on t-shirts illegal. Brisbane was in a State of Emergency. Hear the voices and writings of a strong and political Black Australia fighting for equal rights – forged from the constraints of police lines and barricades.
