Stories of Strength
$65.00 inc. GST
BYDS’ Stories of Strength is a culmination of stories that have been collected by young people in the Bankstown area from their elders through the art of interview. A project funded by Multicultural NSW over three years, this anthology contains oral histories collected since 2016 as well as, essays, portraits and illustrations highlighting intergenerational and cross cultural understanding, empathy, and a celebration of the strength and resilience of inspiring individuals from the Bankstown and greater Western Sydney Area.
This publication is dedicated to those who continue to show strength and resilience in the face of hardship, adversity, and suffering. May the war-torn lands from which you have come or been raised see justice for the injustices that have been brought onto them and their people. We acknowledge you and the inspiration you have instilled in all of us who had the pleasure of meeting you and hearing your stories which you so gracefully gifted to us. We would like to thank you for your generosity in sharing a part of your lives with students from Sir Joseph Banks High, Chester Hill High and Bossley Park High schools and thank each of the students who participated in our project for their grace, respect and enthusiasm.
