At the heart of Home Lands v2 is a coalition of collaboration. The core team is comprised of video for change producers and artists mentoring and co-producing four short-format documentaries, a public installation and an exhibition work with our team of young Hazara in Melbourne and a small network of Hazara abroad.
As Creative Producer, I have the privilege, and the responsibility of leading the entire production and coordinating its overall conception design. And what a brilliant production team we have… they include video producers and trainers Penne Thornton and Naina Sen (Youthwork Media), video installation artist Yandell Walton and photographer Werner Hammerstingl.
We’ve also had the good fortune, thanks to Youthworx and Multicultural Arts Victoria, to work with traditional story-tellers Boori Monty Pryor, South African born Valagna Khosa, and writer / director Meme McDonald. All this in only the first three weeks of workshops. We’ve only just begun… keep watching and listening folks. More to come to be sure.
