Journeys to Here was a project initiated by independent researcher Dr Joy Denise Scott in Perth. The project, led by Rebus Artistic Director, Robin Davidson, took a group of 24 young adults from diverse migrant backgrounds through a workshop process over two and a half weeks. The workshop culminated in a performance for World Refugee Day in Perth.
Participants were from 13 different countries with some 25 languages between them. They performed three short plays and a dance piece to an audience of about 130.
The project was assisted by the Association for Services to Torture and Trauma Survivors (ASeTTS) and was supported by:
- Curtin University School of Media
- Culture and Creative Arts (MCCA) small research/creative production grants
- Community Arts Network WA, which manages the Catalyst Community Arts fund on behalf of Western Australia through the Department of Culture and the Arts, supported by the Mental Health Commission WA.
