Seeking Asylum: Our Stories captures the stories of those who have lived the experience of seeking asylum. Published in partnership with Black Inc., this beautifully illustrated hardback shares stories of the resilience, courage, love and hope of people seeking asylum—in their own words.
Contributors share how they came to be in Australia, and explore diverse aspects of their lives: growing up in a refugee camp, studying for a PhD, changing attitudes through soccer, being Muslim in a small country town, campaigning against racism, surviving detention, holding onto culture, and dreaming of being reunited with family.
Accompanied by beautiful portrait photographs, these stories of seeking asylum show the depth and diversity of people’s experience and trace the impact of Australia’s immigration policies.
100% of the proceeds from Seeking Asylum: Our Stories will be reinvested by the ASRC to fund projects like the ASRC’s Community Advocacy and Power Program (CAPP), which provides people with lived experience of seeking asylum with training to become storytellers, advocates and most importantly, leaders in the community.
