This week we speak to Abbey Mag and Awak Kongor about their contributions to the South Sudanese community in Melbourne and the ethical risks of creating for/about community.
Abbey Mag is a proud Dinka Bor woman of Junub Sudan, now formally known as South Sudan. Abbey’s interest lay in the use of social media and how it can be utilised as means of telling stories and changing narrative.
Awak Rech Kongor is a South Sudanese young black woman in Narrm, Melbourne Victoria. She is the founder of Procrasinated Productions, a South Sudanese, Melbourne based, film and content production company.
