Jazz Money’s first poetry collection, the best selling how to make a basket (UQP, 2021) won the 2020 David Unaipon Award from the State Library of Queensland. Working across a range of mediums including visual art, film, performance, music and print, they have been described by Vogue Australia as a “multidisciplinary force”. Trained as a filmmaker, their first feature film WINHANGANHA (2023) was commissioned by the National Film and Sound Archive.

Mumbai, Auckland Writers Festival, Performance Space New York, PEN International, and a wide range of arts and literary festivals in every Australian state and territory. In 2024 they will be releasing their second poetry collection with UQP. Jazz is a proud member of the Wiradjuri nation, and is currently based on Gadigal and Wangal land in Sydney, Australia.
