Formatted Abstract/Summary
The Change Makers Project is a participatory project funded as part of the Federal Government’s Diversity and Social Cohesion Program. The project’s aim is to build greater connections and cross-cultural understanding between the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, Pacifica, Australian and newly-arrived refugee communities in the Logan area. The project had a working committee of 10 youth from the Woodridge community. The youth are from diverse ethnic backgrounds. Their idea is to call the publication ‘The True Story of Woodridge’.The project published a magazine style publication to tell the story of Woodridge’s youth through the use of stories, photography, artwork and illustrations. It included stories gathered through the Change Makers Project, creative writing, small biographies or photographs capturing the identity of Logan youth. The project published this in a format that captured the attention of Woodridge’s youth, engaging them to better understand those around them (combating stereotypes and racism). Five thousand copies of the magazine were published and distributed throughout the school and wider Woodridge community in October 2014. The publication won Australian student publication of the year at the Ossie Awards in November 2014, as part of the annual Journalism Education Research Association of Australia Conference in Sydney.
