The photographic exhibition focuses on the Hazara community residing in Melbourne. Through impactful photographs and accompanying narrative, the exhibition demonstrates that refugees and asylum seekers are not only statistics reported through government and the media, but real individuals and members of families and communities who hold the same fears, hopes and aspirations for the future as other Australians.
Specifically, the photographs provide insight into the Hazaras' day to day life experiences in the local community and the valuable contributions they are making economically and socially.
