The launch event for ‘Our Stories’ features the stories of four refugees building a new life in Australia. Alpha, Shabnam, David and Aya each arrived in Australia at a different time and from different ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds – will occur at the LaunchPad Hub, Richmond on the evening of 11 December.
Through the website, users are encouraged to step into the shoes of a refugee as they start a new life in Australia and face a series of difficult scenarios encountered by that refugee.
In partnership with Cool Australia we have developed teacher resources for Years 8 and 9, which guide students through a series of scenarios based on the experiences of our storytellers. We hope these lessons will inspire young Australians to consider their attitudes towards refugees and take positive action to foster respect among their peers and create a more inclusive and tolerant multicultural society.
