Abstract This article describes some significant ways that people with refugee experiences have made, or are making, a new home in Brisbane, Australia. These stories highlight the skills and knowledge of participants from Iraq and participants from the Hazara ethnic group from Afghanistan in relation to resisting oppression, finding safety, surviving detention, strengthening cultural pride, embracing family, teaching and learning, lessening discrimination, and hoping for the future. This article also describes the collective narrative practice project through which these stories were generated and documented. It includes the storytelling and storylistening knowledge that guided this project.
