‘I think one of the reasons that Nepal, well maybe the refugee camps we both lived in, were culturally rich, was… I think because of our poverty, and this is not to undermine the strength of Nepalese/Bhutanese culture in binding people together’. In this heartfelt conversation, Barsha and Mon takes you on a journey of navigating culture across continents, sharing some joyful and some thought-provoking experiences and the realisation of deeper connection with culture for their holistic thriving.
Storytelling is a powerful tool to enable connection and social transformation within communities. In this Citizen Power Resettlement episode, Barsha and Mon will explore their resettlement in a foreign land they now call home and share their lived experience of the journey from refugee camp in Nepal to Tasmania’s government quarters. Vulnerability and honesty is what they bring to this conversation to enable global connection with people experiencing/ed displacement and their allies across diverse communities.

Emotions are powerful because mobiles us into action, when we feel rage at a particularly injustice some of us choose to stand against it, bearing the risk of being unpopular and for some even the risk of losing their lives to change it. Others chose to walk by carrying on with their lives. What separates those that stand up to those which carry on? What stops us from raising our voices and taking action.? The answer is one word; Apathy. Music and audio design by Gareth Dawson.
All over the world governments are spending billions of dollars to keep the economy functioning. In times of great shocks to markets, governments rise to action, doing all they can to keep our economic systems in a state of balance. When markets fail, governments move quickly in order to realign the economy and people back to the desired trajectory of growth. But why is that the case for just markets, and not human rights challenges? In the first episode join Citizen Power for a breakdown on neoliberal ideology and its effect on our moral lives.
