Breakout Session: Reporting in Times of Crisis: Telling Migrant Tales through Creative Storytelling
David’s moving debut feature documentary, Cast from the Storm (2016), follows an incredibly brave group of teenage refugees from Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq and Syria, and their journey to build brand new lives in Sydney, Australia. As they begin to confront their darkest memories, they discover their creative voices through a life-changing drama therapy program. David is currently working in remote communities in Arnhem Land, in Australia’s Northern Territory, learning about traditional cultures and supporting young Indigenous Australians to create digital resources. David is deeply interested in storytelling’s ability to empower, educate and inspire individuals and communities.
