Muslims of Victoria: Stories of migration, community and home making


    Are you a Muslim person who immigrated to Australia before 1990?

    We are looking for Muslim people to interview about their experiences of migration, settlement, home making and civic participation.

    Interviews will be filmed to create a 5-minute video which will be shared online.

    This project is funded by the Public Records Office of Victoria and is led by Lutfiye Ali in partnership with North Cyprus Turkish Community Centre of Victoria, Cypriot Turkish Islamic Community of Victoria (Sunshine Mosque) and Community, Identity and Displacement Research Network (CIDRN).  

    To register or for more information please contact Lutfiye: 0405 278 428.
