Client: New Change, South Sudanese Community Association Victoria
Project Date: Jun-Oct 2017
About the Project:
This film was made in a series of participatory video workshops facilitated by Storyscape in Melbourne with New Change, a young African women advocacy group. It focuses on issues related to mental health, and uses poetic letters to parents, friends and broader society to surface the importance of intergenerational connection and support, as well as the need to speak up and out about difficult circumstances.
The film launch incorporated additional material recorded by New Change in English and Dinka projected across three walls, as well as a moving performance piece by New Change.
The young women in New Change continue to screen their film and give talks about mental health and other issues affecting their lives at schools, conferences and other events. An inspiring group of young women who we hope to keep working with in the future!
