Barbara Blackman in Conversation with Kerry Stokes
Join Barbara Blackman in conversation with Kerry Stokes for the launch of Barbara’s new collection of essays, All My Januaries: Pleasures of Life and Other Essays. Barbara has written prolifically over the course of her life, as a broadcaster, poet, librettist, and essayist. At the age of 22, she was diagnosed with optic atrophy, and declared legally blind. Since then, she has fought for blindness to be seen with dignity, was a pioneer of Radio for the Print-Handicapped, and was a Blind Citizens Australia committee member. She is known as an iconic Australian arts identity, and in 2012 was made an Officer of the Order of Australia for her service to arts and the community, as well as for her advocacy work for the blind and partially sighted.
