Cultural Forum: The Pin: A blog about Identity, race and culture

This Cultural Forum will be an intimate affair as we sit down with Pin co-creators Lucie and Nkechi. Established when both women were in their mid twenties, the online forum has grown to be an important meeting point for writers, thinkers and Australians.

Join us as we find out how these women first met and how questions about race, identity and culture led to the development of their site.
