A criminal city needs a criminal festival
Speakers and writers will hail from the worlds of crime writing, investigative journalism and forensic psychology and include judges, high-profile lawyers and detectives.
Taking place at the Justice & Police Museum 2 to 3 September, Bad: Sydney Crime Writers Festival, is the brainchild of academic Denis Tracey and writer Michael Duffy.
Director Denis Tracey said:
“Sydney is a city founded by criminals and their guards. Its convict culture helped shape egalitarian and larrikin Australia. From the Rum Corps of the First Fleet to the razor gangs of the 1920s, the colorful characters of the 1970s and the drive-by shootings that came later, you cannot understand this city without comprehending its vital criminal subculture. BAD: Sydney Crime Writers Festival is an exploration of the dark side that is part of being human.”
Tickets are now on sale.
