Declan Furber Gillick is a poet, songwriter, activist and spoken-word artist originating from Alice Springs, Central Australia. He has lived in Canberra, Adelaide, the East Gippsland High Country, Latin America, and has been settled in Melbourne for the last eighteen months.

With an artistic base in hip-hop and improvisation, his performances are rhythmic and measured. At times funny, at other times mournful, his often deeply personal and political work tells stories about our sense of place, belonging, love for people and for land. Grappling with questions about god, culture, identity, sexuality and purpose, Declan carries on the dusty story-telling tradition of his Arrernte heritage.
