A must-attend #FightRight gives participants practical pointers on how they can turn their good intentions into meaningful help. From art, journalism and to community support, #FightRight will equip you with the unique knowledge derived from both lived and professional experience. The workshop will teach you what should ‘to welcome refugees’ really mean.
The unfair treatment by our government of people seeking asylum is only possible because of an ongoing language of abuse that is designed to dehumanise and degrade, while erasing refugee perspectives. There’s an urgent need to cut through negative rhetoric, and shape a new conversation in Australia: starting by elevating the perspectives, opinions and untold stories of Australia's refugee community in their words.
It is time for people with lived experience of seeking asylum to be at the heart of advocacy.
Join this unique discussion facilitated by Tina Dixson, a human right activist, who sought asylum in Australia in 2012.
Tickets for this workshop are strictly limited with places capped at 20 to ensure an intimate, in-depth atmosphere for discussion. Get in quick before tickets run out!
#FightRight is a part of the Stories about Hope exhibition, on show in the Museum of the Riverina from 20th of June. Check out other events and find out more at: https://www.facebook.com/ReneeDixsonArtist/
