ABOUT THe PROJECT
Aimed at young people in the Northern Mallee areas, this project centres around the production of a series of short videos or “reels” for social media through the eyes of young people from across the region. The videos will tell “local stories” about the highs and lows of working and living in Mallee communities, and showcase examples of personal and community resilience.
The videos will illuminate how resilience is built through adversity, how communities work together to overcome challenges, and the role of community connections, leadership and communication in sustaining resilient Mallee communities.
An official “screening” of the Mallee-REEL-Culture series will be held towards the end of the project, which will serve as a celebration of youth and resilience in our region, and strengthen connections between youth, service providers, major stakeholders, employers and Community Impact Program delivery partners.
Mallee Sustainable Farming is proudly leading this project for the Victorian Mallee Region that is funded through the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund | Helping Regional Communities Prepare for Drought – Community Impact Program.
This Initiative assists communities in strengthening networks ahead of drought through community-led projects and support for individuals in developing leadership skills to benefit their community. The Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal is delivering this Initiative in partnership with the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation
