The Past Matters is an annual festival of contemporary Indigenous writing. Bringing together some of the best writers and thinkers from around Australia, this festival seeks to generate discussion on Indigenous affairs and raise awareness of Indigenous literature.

In 2012 the Australian Indigenous Studies program at the University of Melbourne will host the first session of the festival: 'Present Concerns'. Philip Morrissey will facilitate a panel discussion with Indigenous authors Marie Munkara, Ali Cobby Eckermann, Nicole Watson and the distinguished poet Lionel Fogarty.

Book signing and refreshments will follow the session. Everyone welcome.
