    The Staging Post - Film Screening

    We love screening The Staging Post and meeting all the wonderful people around Australia. There is nothing more heart-warming and powerful than being amongst friends and community. So, as part of Refugee Week ‘19, Muzafar Ali, his family, and Jolyon Hoff are hitting the road again. Each screening will include a Q&A with Muzafar, his wife Nagina and the director, Jolyon Hoff, and we’ll Skype the refugees in Indonesia.

    Inspired by the Cisarua Refugee Learning Centre (CRLC), there are now over ten refugee-led learning centres and more than 1800 refugees involved in education in Indonesia. We’ll update you on this remarkable refugee-led education revolution, all the latest achievements and developments at the CRLC, and explain how we are building a borderless community of support, connection and two-way education together.

    Sense of Sewing - Fashion Show

    ‘Sense of Sewing’ project began from the vision of young entrepreneurial thinkers who participated in the Generational Leaders WOMEN Program.

    Generational Leaders WOMEN seeks to shape future-ready leaders who are self-aware and other-aware. Delivered by The Future Leader Group, in partnership with Cabra-Vale Diggers. Over 10 weeks, young women were given the opportunity to build partnerships with inspiring community organisations. CORE worked alongside these participants from local schools and organisations to spark entrepreneurial thinking in addressing real challenges for women in the community.

    Through project management, CORE Community Services put vision into practice and produced the Sense of Sewing project. Partnering with TAFE NSW to deliver a tailored program for newly arrived Migrant and Refugee Women in the Fairfield LGA.

    Sense of Sewing brings diverse women together to learn basic sewing and design skills, improve English language skills, build life skills, form friendships, and provide pathways to employment and educational opportunities. 

    Sense of Sewing is a creative initiative that goes beyond the classroom, as students work towards creating personalised garments for the Sense of Sewing fashion show.
