About the campaign
The #RacismNotWelcome campaign is a community-led, grassroots initiative intended to acknowledge the existence of racism, validate people’s lived experiences with racism and normalise conversations about racism whilst igniting change.
The Inner West Multicultural Network decided that more needed to be done to provide a safe platform for people to speak out, to normalise discussion about racism at a community level and to help communities fight racism together.
Interviews with the community about their experience of racism and what needs to change.
This project was developed to commemorate the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on the 21st March.
