Talk Back brought together community members from different cultures and religions to work with artists to address racism and other community issues through community cultural development principles. Community members expressed their views through a series of workshops, planned and prepared staging a theatrical production which ran for a number of days.
Talk Back was performed to audiences in Bankstown, Canterbury and Sutherland. Young people, partner agencies, community organisations, ethnic groups, religious groups and local Councils appreciated how Talk Back helped to open dialogue about issue’s relating to racism, discrimination and the like within the community and ways to work together rather than apart.
The project was supported by Canterbury Community Harmony Roundtable an initiative of Community Relations Commission (presently known as Multicultural NSW), along with Canterbury-Bankstown Council and several other sponsors.
