Day 2 at the Brisbane Writers Festival and things have kicked off early with a lively session of chat, songs and guitar strumming with indigenous musicians Kev Carmody and Richard J Franklin.

Franklin urged the audience to help change the shape of Australia and recognise Aboriginal culture as a ‘living, breathing entity’ to make the nation more inclusive of the 500 aboriginal tribes and all the other cultures which make up Australia in 2007. And together they led the audience in a range of old style ‘Protest Songs’ and witty prose!

More to come later in the day…
