An EORA Poetic path in Darling Harbour celebrated NAIDOC Week’s theme ‘Because of Her We Can’.

Darling Square and Darling Quarter with Red Room Poetry acknowledge the invaluable contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women through poetic moments.

First Nations poets Jeanine Leane (Wiradjuri), Kirli Saunders (Gunai and Gundungurra Custodian), Joel Davison (Gadigal), Ali Cobby Eckermann (Yankunytjatjara and Kokatha), Lorna Munro (Wiradjuri and Gamilaroi) presented their heartfelt words alongside the visual work of artist David Cragg.

Audiences immersed themselves in the evocative words of some of Australia's finest poets on the NAIDOC theme of 'Because of Her We Can'.
