This Is Us Australia interviews members of the Australian community with a migration story, be this one of coming to Australia or being born here to parents who migrated. The project is also keen to interview people with other stories of difference. It aims to foster understanding, challenge stereotypes and present a broad and diverse picture of who “we” are as Australians.
