The Cultural Development Network and the City of Melbourne are presenting their first free public forum for 2011 ‘Home... Lands?’ on Wednesday 23 March, 2.00pm-5.00pm.
Constructing home and identity with young people from refugee backgrounds through media and technology.
This forum seeks to address issues arising from young people’s use of technology in construction of identity and home in a new country. Can re-settlement of young people from refugee backgrounds be more successful if identification and communication with home communities is maintained? How can technology assist with this?
