Yunited Voicez was a media project for young people from refugee backgrounds living in Wellington, New Zealand. In ran from June to November 2009. They learned about and created media; and through writing, radio, film, photography and online media gave us a better idea of who they really are.
You can see the Tumblr blogs of our participants at the following addresses:
The project was coordinated by ChangeMakers Refugee Forum, a community organisation which brings together 13 different refugee-background communities living in Wellington. Our partner was Wellington Refugees As Survivors, a specialist mental health provider for refugee communities.

We were very lucky to have the support of over 20 skilled media volunteers, and from ETC, Squiz Net, Danny T the Master Chef, Joe at Kreuzberg Summer Cafe, WPS (www.wps.net.nz) and The Lanes (www.thelanes.co.nz). THANKS!
