Then here’s your chance to work with Australia’s premier human rights body!
The Australian Human Rights Commission is recruiting 10 people for Tell Me A Story, where you will work with the Commission to produce compelling short videos about ordinary people taking extraordinary human rights actions.
How do I apply?
- Create a video of 2 mins or less on a human rights story, featuring one of the following themes: Freedom, Respect, Equality, or Belonging
- Fill out the entry form
- Upload your story to Something In Common
What will I be doing?
First, you’ll join us in Sydney for an all-day training workshop with the digital storytelling specialists Curious Works (the Commission will cover travel expenses).
Then, you’ll work with the Commission to produce six digital human rights stories—one story each month for six months.
We’ll upload your videos to www.somethingincommon.gov.au and promote them through the Commission’s social networking sites.
You don’t have to be Steven Spielberg—you can film using just your iPhone, but we’re looking for a diverse range of interesting and personal stories from your community. Stories that might inspire others to take human rights action.
