NEW SETTLERS documents the diversity of people who immigrate to Australia, and defies the prejudice and stereotyping embedded in parts of society. It is common in media coverage to play on fear in the community and demonize boat people.
What does Australia look like? What is the face of Australia today? Who are the people that now make up the Great South Land that fascinated explorers and attracted them, in their tiny boats, to venture forth to a new continental country?
