Event description

Description

Short films from refugee and asylum-seeker artists

This event is part of UNSW Diversity Fest.

Beyond Refuge has been a three year creative development program for artists who share an asylum seeker and refugee experience, produced by Western Sydney-based organisation CuriousWorks. Recently arrived and first generation artists collaborated to give voice and vision to new stories of our times, from the kernel of an idea through to the creation of unique film and photo-media projects. A team of experienced Australian artists and community collaborators, led by CuriousWorks, supported each artistic team and produced the works, focussing on process, voice and professional opportunity.

The outcome of this experience is Beyond refuge: dialogues, a set of five commissions from artists who share an asylum seeker and refugee experience. Each artist has developed, on their own terms, a cinema poem to express a fundamental story that resonates with their lives and the lives of many people who share this experience.
