HEARTLANDS 2014
A Day in the Life of the Hazara
Barat Ali Batoor Exhibition

Walkey Award Winning photographer, Barat Ali Batoor’s photographic exhibition focuses on the Hazara community residing in Melbourne.

Through impactful photographs and an accompanying narrative, the exhibition demonstrates that refugees and asylum seekers are not only statistics reported through government and the media, but real individuals and members of families and communities who hold the same fears, hopes and aspirations for the future as other Australians. Specifically, the photographs will provide insight into the Hazaras’ day to day life experiences in the local community and the contributions they are making economically and socially.

Heartlands 2014 is supported by Multicultural Arts Victoria as part of Emerge Festival 2014, which presents new refugee and emerging artists who have recently settled in Australia. From May 17 – July 5, Multicultural Arts Victoria will celebrate the 11th anniversary of Emerge Festival, showcasing talented artists from Melbourne’s emerging refugee communities and the diverse cultures that have woven colourful and intricate patterns into the identity of our unique city.

A Day in the Life of the Hazara is produced by AMES and supported by Multicultural Arts Victoria.
