~ARRIVAL~
Life in Australia: Celebrating young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds

These short films capture young people’s stories and experiences of settling in Australia. Produced in partnership with Dr David Corlett, acclaimed filmmaker and host of SBS' Go Back To Where You Came From, the 9 films feature young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds talking about leaving their country, arriving in Australia, what helped them settle in Australia, belonging, identity and aspirations for the future.

In this clip, the young people interviewed reflect on and discuss what it was like to first arrive in Australia, what they felt and experienced.

This film will be available for streaming for 24 hours. MYAN will be posting a clip for viewing each day over #RefugeeWeek in the theme of #AWorldOfStories to promote positive narratives of young refugees and migrants and deepen understanding of the refugee experience for young people.

Please enjoy learning about these young people's 'Arrival' to Australia, and share with your networks.

✨💚💜HAPPY REFUGEE WEEK! 💜💚✨
🌎~ A World of Stories ~🌎

“Sharing stories to me is an opportunity for self-reflection as well as establishing human connections with others."
- Narayan Khanal, NSW

Refugee Week is Australia's peak annual activity, coordinated by Refugee Council of Australia (RCOA) to celebrate the positive contributions made by refugees to Australian society, promote positive narratives and raise awareness about the issues impacting refugees to create a culture of understanding and welcome.

MYAN Australia is reimagining the theme, A World of Stories, which calls for participants to Share a Meal, Share a Story, by holding a 'virtual feast' to share a plate of ‘food for thought'.

🗣Why is sharing stories important to you? 🗣

👂🏽Why is it important to engage with stories of refugee experiences? 👂🏽

Storytelling is an important part of understanding the positive contributions that young people from refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds make in Australia. Storytelling is a powerful form of advocacy, a way to build understanding, learn from one another, challenge stereotypes or a single story narrative and create a sense of welcome and belonging.

At FUSE 2019, MYAN's National Multicultural Youth Summit, storytelling was a key theme of approaches to advocacy, leadership and networking. We heard from delegates and speakers about the importance of storytelling in their experiences of advocacy, community building, in their journey settling in Australia, for their cultural identity and a sense of belonging in Australia.

Throughout this week, we will be sharing the 'virtual feast' of fantastic responses we received from young people across Australia on why sharing stories is so important.

We will also be publishing our short film series, Life in Australia: Celebrating Young People from Refugee and Migrant Backgrounds. The 9 films feature young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds talking about leaving their country, arriving in Australia, what helped them settle in Australia, belonging, identity and aspirations for the future. *Each part will be available for streaming for 48 hours.*

“Sharing my story is important to me because I believe in the power of storytelling to bring about positive change. It is desperately needed to put a face to the journey and experience of thousands of people who have found hope and started a new life in their new home, who contribute and give back immensely to the community, but often remain just a number or statistics to the wider community and more importantly, to the policy and decision makers”
- Shabnam Safa, VIC
