Papuan Voices is a video-advocacy initiative assisting West Papuan communities to tell their stories. It challenges common misconceptions about this troubled territory and builds local storytellers in a region where foreign journalists are banned.
From 2010-2012 EngageMedia collaborated with grassroots groups in two cities to teach Papuan activists video-production and distribution skills. The result is a series of videos and an education toolkit that brings together the everyday stories of West Papuans. The videos and toolkit can be accessed at papuanvoices.net.
In May 2013 we are touring Papuan Voices to Melbourne, Hobart, Canberra, Sydney and Newcastle. Come along and spread the word to your friends! [download flyer]
