INNIE OUTIE: creating a particular experience

The principles of deep interiority with no representations of being outward oriented are in belly button terms all innie and no outie. The interior is where we are. The exterior is where we go. Part of what constitutes sexuality is that which links the interior to the exterior. These complex relationships link the private to the public, the individual to society and the larger environment. It is what shapes and forms our human experience.

Meet the poets: Tricia Dearborn is an award-winning poet, writer and editor. Willo Drummond is a queer poet who lives and writes on Dharug and Gundungurra land. Charles Freyberg is a Kings Cross (Sydney) poet and performer. Kari McKern is a retired career public servant and IT specialist, who responds to events with poetry. Paris Rosemont combines her love for poetry and theatre into the art of performance poetry. Emcee: Lou Steer is a cabaret poetry diva, performing her poetry directly to people in museums, nightclubs, festivals and even graveyards.
