‘A Day in the Life’ Video Series of Young People During the Pandemic


The aim of the ‘A Day in the Life’ video initiative was to show the diverse needs of young people during the pandemic and to highlight the diversity of experience of young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds across Australia.

The project used video to amplify the voices of young people about their experiences and perspectives in the pandemic.

14 youth participants were trained and supported to produce individual video diaries.

This initiative was led by Multicultural Youth Advocacy Network (MYAN), a national organization representing the rights and interests of young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds in Australia, which was funded by the Australian government.
