Happy New Year to Everyone!

As a Chinese living in Australia, I go to see the New Year’s Eve fireworks as a ritual every year. It is always a good time to reflect on the past year and look forward to the next when the firework spectacular lights up the sky from Sydney’s iconic attraction – the Sydney Harbour Bridge. This year’s display did not disappoint with photos shared on WeChat wowing many of my friends back home.

Ethnic community groups in Casey Victoria got together to share their stories about their personal journeys to Australia as migrants for artist Dena Al Jamal to transform these stories and ideas into a quilt artwork.
