Two women went on wild journeys that changed their lives - and wrote about them. Burnt out by her job as an environmental campaigner, Claire Dunn embarked on a year-long immersion in the bush, learning wilderness survival skills and apprenticing herself to the elements and the earth. My Year Without Matches - by Claire Dunn is the memoir of that time. Maya Ward walked the length of the Yarrra River, from the sea to the source, along an ancient Wurundjeri Songline, and she tells of the journey in her book The Comfort of Water: A River Pilgrimage
Join these two wild women in conversation, with Q&A and book signings to follow.
Music by Manoa and Ronny Hickel from Ecological Encounters.
