Being. Multicultural. Aware. | Bebe Backhouse | More Than These Bones

Bebe Backhouse joins Tony K. Fretton, to tell us of his life’s journey and his recent debut solo publication “More Than These Bones”.

We hear why he started to write the book, but also how this then changed, as time and experiences altered his outlook and purpose.

More Than These Bones is a poetry work detailing the author’s journey through heartbreak and self-discovery.

Bebe is a frequent commentator on the arts and culture community, with a passion for advocacy, advancement, and the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Hosted by Tony K. Fretton, founder of Pacifique X.
