unbound Book Club

unbound invites audiences to reimagine representations of people, places and experiences through the voices of First Nations and Black authors from around the world. unbound offers avid and occasional readers the opportunity to choose from a curated list of biographies, memoirs, poetry, short stories, essays and fiction. During unbound participants will be invited to monthly facilitated conversations at Rockhampton Museum of Art with Dr Melinda Mann (First Nations Arts Officer).
