Activist, advocate for survivors of childhood sexual abuse Grace Tame has never walked on middle ground.

Live in conversation with Michael Salter, hear Grace's story, in Grace's words, on Grace's terms. Sharply intelligent, deeply felt and often blisteringly funny, offering a constructive and optimistic vision for a better future for all of us.

“I have given heart and tears and raw honesty (and a few dad jokes) to this book - my whole self. I can't wait to share it with you and to keep the conversation going.'
- Grace Tame

From a young age, her life was defined by uncertainty - by trauma and strength, sadness and hope, terrible lows and wondrous highs. As a teenager she found the courage to speak up after experiencing awful and ongoing child sexual abuse. This fight to find her voice would not be her last.

In 2021 Grace stepped squarely into the public eye as the Australian of the Year, and was the catalyst for a tidal wave of conversation and action. Australians from all walks of life were inspired and moved by her fire and passion. Here she was using her voice, and encouraging others to use theirs too.

Now, celebrate the release of Grace’s memoir The Ninth Life of a Diamond Miner live on stage.

“We are proud to announce that 75% of profits will be donated directly to the Grace Tame Foundation. The Grace Tame Foundation (GTF) is a not-for-profit organisation established by Grace Tame, to campaign for and help fund initiatives which work to prevent and respond to sexual abuse of children and others.” – Grace Tame
