Making Australia Home: A Conversation with Refugees About Community Change
This Refugee Week, meet people who survive despite a system designed to keep them out. Can their stories inspire unity in our community?

Join us on Friday 25 June from 7-8pm to find out.

Together, creative producer Grace Edward and performance artist Manal Younus will lead a conversation with other refugees about the experience of settling into the Australian community. Hear from:

Hani Abdile, a spoken-word poet, writer and University of Technology Sydney journalism student living on temporary protection.

Mostafa Azimitabar, a Kurdish refugee who fled Iran and was held on Christmas Island, Manus Island, Port Moresby and two inner city Melbourne hotels for 2737 days for no crime before being recently released into the community.

Zaki Haidari, a 2020 Australian Human Rights Commission Human Rights Hero and an Ambassador for the Refugee Advice and Casework Service (RACS), who works at Jesuit Refugee Service assisting refugees and people seeking asylum to find work.

Our event chair, Shankar Kasynathan, will will tell us about how human stories can inspire unity in our community and change in policy.
