West Meets West (Melbourne and Sydney)

Hear tales from two cities as Sweatshop and West Writers Group team up to bring you the best from the West in both Sydney and Melbourne. Get punched in the gut by a piece from Sydney before someone reads you a riot from Melbourne, then back again.  Live readings will be performed to audiences in both cities, and live-streamed to an online audience.

Please note: This is a live, in-person event held in both Melbourne and Sydney. If you can’t make either of those you can always stream it online, right here at the DWF website.

Presented in partnership with Sweatshop and the Footscray Community Arts Centre
