Creating listening spaces for intergenerational communication - Tiffany Lee-Shoy in conversation with Tanja Dreher
Tiffany Lee-Shoy is the Senior Policy Advisor on Cultural Development at Fairfield City Council in western Sydney. In this exchange with Tanja Dreher, Tiffany reflects on recent community development work using digital storytelling to create new ‘listening spaces’ for young Khmer-Australians and their parents and grandparents. The project, known as ‘Fairfield Stories’, involved training young people to use digital technologies to produce short documentaries about their lives to be screened, in the first instance, to family and friends. The project forms one part of Tiffany's wider commitment to developing citizens' media initiatives and civic engagement in Fairfield, one of the most culturally diverse Local Government Areas in Australia.
