Pacific Stories is a media arts project based in Melbourne and set to start in December 2010 through to March 2011. We are looking for Pacific Islanders, particularly Melanesians living in Melbourne, to participate in the project. You will be involved in discussions around Melanesian identities and narratives; and you will learn all the skills you need to develop and produce a short film that explores these themes. Participation will be free and all facilities, equipment and resources will be provided. Regular workshops will be held in the Western Suburbs.

To find out more, please contact Amie or Lia (details under “Contacts” page) or fill out this application form before 15 November 2010: Fill out online Pacific Stories Application Form

We hope that participants will benefit by learning and exploring their past and marrying their traditional knowledge with modern digital mediums to find a empowering medium that allows for culturally appropriate and rich dialogue and storytelling.
