Wreck Yo’Self… We dare you!
Federation Square: 'My Life My Family My Home' coinciding with Refugee Week. Newly arrived non-English speaking students from 16 different nationalities took cameras home for four weeks to take photos of their family, friends, their new environment. Working with Melbourne Arts Club founder/Photographer J Forsyth, students chose images that reflect both old and new symbols of their identity and wrote about why the photo was important. Running until 23 June in the Atrium at Federation Square.
