Nandi Chinna The poems in The Future Keepers honour ecosystems and the custodians of future ecologies. They navigate the poet's own embodied experiences of change and succession - of family, community and place. From the research scientists, gardeners, birds and plants of Kings Park, to the activism and ecosystems of the Beeliar Wetlands, to the poet's own inherited landscapes, these poems evoke mutuality and exchange in speaking of the gifts we receive from being open to encounters with othe...
