AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Due to significant demand, UWA Publishing has gathered together a selection of Robyn Archer's most memorable keynote speeches and memorial lectures from the past seven years. Key addresses include: Garma Opening Keynote: Garma Festival, Gulkala, North East Arnhem Land; Keynote Address: Arts, Culture, Tourism Better Business Blitz, Perth; Materials for Life: The Enduring Value of Biography, The National Biography Award Annual Lecture 2006; Reflecting Identity: The Inevitable Role of Culture, Menzies Lecture, South Range Theatre, King's College London; Keynote Address: Raise Your Voice, Fourth National Public Galleries Summit, Townsville; Unconditional Love: Industry that Pays, and Art that Doesn't, The Wal Cherry Lecture, Flinders University.

These words were written to be 'performed' and as such Robyn regards them as Detritus, that which remains of the act of public speaking. Grappling with the matters of how artists live and work, and what we do with this work in the wider cultural sphere, this collection of Robyn's speeches is designed to entertain and provoke.'
