Me is a twelve month project commissioned for Multicultural Week 2017. People from 10 different countries share an item that has cultural significance to them. Whether migrants, refugees or Indigenous Australians, they all have an interesting story to tell.

Many Australian Photographers (MAPgroup), one of the country‚Äôs most recognised photographic collectives, have collaborated with refugees and asylum seekers on their latest project; Beyond Borders. Participants are from a range of countries including Burma, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Jordan, Columbia, Iran and Somalia. They share some of their stories and experiences. This most recent MAPgroup project seeks to present an alternative view of some of the issues relating to asylum seekers and refugees in Australia. This exhibition will be held in August 2017 at The Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka (M.A.D.E) an Australian museum, which engages visitors in the compelling story of democracy. The stories are told of the ordinary men and women, past and present, which have fought for the democratic freedoms we enjoy today.

First Time is a twelve month documentary project that gains an insight into being a first time father. Through fly-on-the-wall footage and interviews, this documentary will follow a male's experience from conception through to three months after birth.
