Join contributors Natasha Cica and Damon Young and Griffith Review editor Ashley Hay in conversation with Amanda Ducker (The Mercury) for the Tasmanian launch of Griffith Review 67: Matters of Trust – a fascinating and forensic examination of how we experience and enact trust in our public and personal lives. While Damon Young delves into the ethics of Marvel superheroes and Natasha Cica reimagines her social and political self through an award-winning artwork, both consider what trust looks like and means in our everyday lives.
With new work from Anne Tiernan, David Ritter, Cameron Muir, Alex Miller, Sophie Overett, Omar Sakr, John Kinsella and many more, this timely edition of Griffith Review explores the implications and opportunities of a collapse in trust, from diplomacy to the dynamics of the most intimate personal relationships. In asking how we can find connection in increasingly divided and disrupted spaces, Matters of Trust offers stories of transformation, epiphany and hope.
