Bill Hayes: How we live now

245 Wilson Street, Eveleigh NSW 2042

Friday 30 April from 10:30am to 11:30am


Adult: $25Concession: $20

Bill Hayes is a renowned writer and photographer, hailed by Edmund White as “the great poet of the everyday”. When the world came to a halt early last year, he took to the streets of Manhattan to document the lockdown.

The resulting collection of poetry and images, How We Live Now: Scenes from the Pandemic, is reminiscent of Insomniac City, Bill’s tender ode to New York and his partner, the late Oliver Sacks. It celebrates the shared humanity that emerged during a time of unanticipated catastrophe. Bill appears live via video to share his photographs and anecdotes during a special immersive event with Anton Enus.
