Multicultural Expressions of Parenting Love

This project featured a 10 minute digital story that captured the experiences of parents who migrated to Australia and raised their children in Australia. Expressions of parental love across multicultural and diverse communities are celebrated through the short film.

The film was recorded during a workshop facilitated by Dr Shanti Raman (Community Paediatrician and NAPCAN board member) and Amrit Versha (Community Educator & National Winner NAPCAN Play your Part Award 2015). Positive parenting strategies in which parents used to express their love and discipline their children were explored in the workshop. Positive methods of parenting including storytelling, healing cirlcles, learning conversations with elders, cultural rituals and norms were discussed.

This project is a partnership between Boronia Multicultural Services (BMS), National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (NAPCAN) and Third Space Productions.

The short film was launched on the evening of Friday 9 September, 2016 at the International & Cultural Exchange, Parramatta.
