A Story of Souls with Dr Debra Dank

Dr Debra Dank is a Gudanji/Wakaja woman. She’s a daughter, mother, wife, grandmother, academic, and scholar – currently serving as a University of South Australia Visiting Research Fellow. Her memoir of family, community and Country, We Come With This Place, was recently awarded a record four out of fourteen NSW Premier’s Literary Awards – including the top gong, Book of the Year. She was also awarded the Indigenous Writers’ Prize and received the awards for non-fiction and new writing.

Dank’s book explores the themes of family, Country, love, pain, grief, laughter, story, ancestors, and language.

She highlights how the English language, which was imposed on this continent, fails to fully capture the essence of the more than 250 First Nation languages (including 800 dialects) that exist here.

The Hawke Centre is proud to welcome Dr Debra Dank, who will read from her book.

She will then be joined by University of South Australia Senior Research Fellow, Associate Professor Sue Joseph, who will lead a discussion on the book’s origins before responding to pre-submitted questions from the audience.

Current in a panel discussio

Through performative practice, master craftwork, design, documentary film and more, discover how six artists interpret our present world of environmental turmoil and our human connections to the ocean from the coast of Brittany in France to the Great Australian Bight.
