Celeste Liddle - Take a Stand
We are extremely excited about our guest for today’s episode - Her name is Celeste Liddle.
Celeste is a writer, a trade unionist, a proud Arrente feminist, and the Greens Candidate for the Cooper electorate, right here in Melbourne. She’s also responsible for one of my favourite twitter feeds as you’ll hear later on! As I’ve already mentioned, we were very keen to speak with Celeste and especially grateful that she spoke with us from her home in isolation with Covid!
In this conversation we talk about Celeste's experiences being the only Aboriginal student at her high school in Melbourne. She shares how she used writing and poetry to process and share her perspective, and how this is something that she still does today. We also talk about her experiences writing in published media and online. We also discuss some of the issues that inspired her to run for the Greens party!
