MyGreat Story brings UN Human Rights’ global #StandUp4Migrants initiative to Australia. In partnership with Love Frankie, the campaign aims to build human rights-based narratives and promote a culture of welcoming migrants in Australia – by using food to create common ground and a safe space to reimagine dialogue on migration.
MyGreat Story features eight recognisable Australians across the fields of sport, fashion, food, art and culture, including artist Emmanuel Asante, hip hop artist and producer Sukhdeep Bhogal (LFresh), chef Alvin Quah, pro surfer Ace Buchan, fashion designer Gary Bigeni, and musicians Lara Andallo, A.Girl and Charlie Collins. Together they represent the diverse migrant community in Australia, coming from Ghanaian, Filipino, Indian, Malaysian, South African, Maltese, Polynesian, and Indian backgrounds.
Meeting for the first time, together, they share stories and recipes, showing how we can all find commonalities and connect when we make room for each other over a meal.
The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (UN Human Rights) is the leading UN entity on human rights. We represent the world’s commitment to the promotion and protection of the full range of human rights and freedoms set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We have a unique role to promote and protect all human rights, help empower people, and assist governments in the Asia Pacific region and around the world.
UN Human Rights’ #StandUp4Migrants initiative aims to change the way we tell stories about migrants and migration, brining communities together and upholding the human rights of migrants no matter who they are or where they come from.
