Brow Books partnership announced

Thanks to the support of the Victorian Government through a VicArts grant announced this month, The Relationship is the Project will be published in partnership with Brow Books in 2019.

Contributors to The Relationship is the Project include: Genevieve Grieves on working in First Nations cultural contexts, Dianne Jones, Odette Kelada and Lilly Brown on Racial Literacy, Ruth De Souza and Robyn Higgins on cultural safety in the arts, and Caroline Bowditch on access and ableism, along with Adolfo Aranjuez, Alia Gabres, Anna Reece, Daniel Santangeli, Eleanor Jackson, Esther Anatolitis, Fotis Kapetopoulos, co-editor Kate Larsen, Lenine Bourke, Lia Pa’apa’a, Paschal Berry, Rosie Dennis, Samuel Kanaan-Oringo, Tania Cañas and Lillie herself. The team of co-editors and sensitivity readers also includes Cara Kirkwood and Jax Jacki Brown.

The advice they share will include insights into the ethics and logistics of working in community contexts – from collaboration and leadership to platforming and duty of care.

“Not only is this book a timely resource for the sector at large, it is an essential contribution to the conversations taking place across the country on diversity, inclusion and best practice,” publisher Sam Cooney says.
