“When we share, we heal, reconnect, and grow, both as individuals and as a united, strengthened collective. History, lived experience, the whole truth, unsanitised, and unedited, is our greatest learning resource. It is what informs social and structural change.” –  Grace Tame – National Press Club of Australia 2021

Social activist and passionate advocate for survivors of childhood sexual abuse Grace Tame has never walked on middle ground.

Live in conversation, 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 project – 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.

This tour will also directly support The Grace Tame Foundation (GTF) a not-for-profit philanthropic organisation established in 2021 to campaign for and help fund initiatives which work to prevent and respond to sexual abuse of children and others.

“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

The GTF Board has formally resolved that Directors (including Grace) will not receive or accrue any wages/salaries.

The Ninth Life of a Diamond Miner, will be published 27th September 2022 by Pan Macmillan Australia
