Abstract: 

Lorna Munro is a Wiradjuri poet, activist and multi disciplinary artist. She has been strongly influenced and nurtured by her activist parents and mentored by many other members of the Aboriginal Blak Power movement. An active member of her community since age 13, Lorna calls the Redfern/Waterloo areas of the inner city of Sydney home. She honours her teachers and elders by passing on what she was taught and is currently developing and facilitating art/poetry programs and tours interpreting the history of her local area with young people along with her work with the Red Room Comp
