How to Belong to a community

The City of Ryde sought to understand what social inclusion meant to the people of its community in the efforts to create a fair and inclusive social justice plan for the future.

Supported by dLux Media Arts, I spent a week within the community, moving from aged care facilities to council towers, I attended local festivals and went into the homes of people with disabilities or disadvantaged backgrounds, all on the quest to discover what community meant and how we could find new strategies for inclusion.

The research was compiled into a documentary which premiered at a local film festival and was shared online for the rest of the community to enjoy.
