The Good Immigrant
Presented by Özesu Keles and Özgü Güntekin.
Turkish language program, presented weekly on Thursday evenings from 6.30-7pm, starting Thursday 4 March, 2021.
The Good Immigrant invites the audience to have the difficult conversations. The historical complexities of “migrants” sit at the fragile intersection of colonialism, racism and class domination especially here in Australia. We particularly investigate migrant women’s experience given the dual status, as women and as the marginalised. The Good Immigrant will celebrate the creative, academic and labour achievements of Anatolian immigrants through discussion around their work and community organisations that they’re involved in. It will also be a platform for information sharing about some of the challenges that people face when trying to access higher education, public services, job opportunities and also opportunities for connecting with community organisations that can support their development in these areas. We are on a journey to dismantle the toxic misconception of “The Good Immigrant”.
