The latest Census statistics paint a picture of Australia that many of us already see on our streets - almost half of Australia's population are first or second-generation migrants. But we don't see this diversity when we go to the theatre, or visit an art gallery, or even when we watch TV at home. So what does it feel like if your culture is largely invisible? In this original podcast series by Diversity Arts Australia, we'll ask this question of some of Australia's leading culturally diverse artists and arts workers. We'll look at what's working and explore ways to increase diversity so our arts and screens look like the real Australia.

Thought-provoking discussion on the representation of people of colour on our TV screens compared with the current census data of Australia's increasingly multi-cutlural population. Thanks for a great interview with Benjamin Law!
A timely and insightful series of national converations on diversity and inclusion - well worth a listen!
Great energy, right on the zeitgeist. Finally a good insightful commentary and a strengths-based approach to diversity representation.
