Additional information

Sista Zai Zanda is a poet whose research-based artistic practice formed out of prior studies in International Development and Law (with a focus on gender and sexuality in the southern African context). As the founder and curator of the Pan Afrikan Poets Cafe, her curatorial practice created a platform that showcased over one hundred performances by African-descended artists in conversation with First Nations. Her work within the creative industries contributed to the development of Melbourne's rich Afro-diasporic literary culture and inspiration for her PhD research topic.
