Join us for ACCA Book Club, our new regular online catch up about reading, writing and more. We invite a special guest and previous contributor to ACCA publications, to lead an open and active discussion with participants about a written work of their choice.

Next up, writer Kat Clarke will discuss her essay ‘The Road Trip’, written in association with the ACCA exhibition A Lightness of Spirit is the Measure of Happiness in 2018, curated by Hannah Presley.

To take part in this Book Club, register here as soon as you can (as places are limited) and get reading!

On registration you will receive a unique zoom link.

Kat Clarke’s essay can be downloaded for free via the ACCA Publication listing, or purchase a hard copy of the full publication for $10 via the ACCA Bookshop.


Kat Clarke is a proud Wotjobaluk writer, consultant, artist and curator from the Wimmera. She is an active advocate within her own community and Land Council and holds strong relationships with multiple Melbourne and Victorian communities. Graduating from RMIT in Creative Writing and majored in Screenwriting, Clarke gradually developed her craft alongside learning the ways of her cultural lore and storytelling from community and Elders dear to her. She continues to acknowledge her teachings by incorporating her own interpretations that speak through different forms of her creative practices.  Clarke’s skills and knowledge in community engagement, networking, writing, the arts, and education has led her to collaborate with RMIT, Rag and Bone Man Press, Footscray Community Arts, The Koorie Heritage Trust, Screen Australia and The Lifted Brow – Blak Brow edition. She consults with mainstream, creative industries and community organisations ensuring the right cultural processes are upheld, and recently was contracted by ACMI as Assistant First Nations Curator working on the ACMI Re/new project and Cleverman: The Exhibition, where her contributions have been key throughout the development process.
