AUSUD VOICES is a blog where participants of the AuSud Media Project develop and share their stories. The AuSud (meaning ‘lion’ in Arabic) Media Project is a journalism training initiative for East African people in Australia.
Through the training the participants learn the fundamentals of journalism, develop relationships with mainstream media, and work in a newsroom environment to create this blog. The training is delivered by practicing journalists from highly respected media organisations.
The AuSud Media Project is offered through the Centre for Advanced Journalism at The University of Melbourne and is supported by an ARC Linkage Grant (LP110100063). We are working in partnership with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) and the Australian Multicultural Education Service (AMES).
