Proposals Australia from March, 2013
Australia: Replenish the Earth – Voices from Aboriginal Australians
Project REARTH aims to promote ecological and social justice. It will collect stories from aboriginal Australians, whose views and knowledge focus strongly on living harmoniously with our land. Stories will be uploaded on websites First Voices and The Goodness Inc. It will create a blog including videos, audio and art where aboriginal Australians can be at the centre of social change by delivering social media training and tools.
Australia: Circles and Squares
Project will reach out to a refugee community in Australia, teach skills in online blogging by using video and audio recording to share knowledge of history, experience and community. This knowledge will become a digital archive where stories are told through various media e.g. dance, music, sound, art or text. Stories can be uploaded on a continual basis.
