 Narratives of Hope

I’m a strong believer that it is in the sharing of story that we find a way to peace and justice. Taylor Frankling, Teara Musrau and Ama Sam recently shared their stories as part of the Australian Catholic University’s Narratives of Hope initiative. 

Narratives of Hope is a joint ACU community engagement and Equity Pathways initiative that provides an opportunity to change public perceptions through storytelling, while ensuring participants also develop literacy skills and knowledge around storytelling, technology and performance.

Taylor focused on the power of a positive mindset in embracing life’s obstacles. Teara used art to highlight the truth that goodness will always shine through. Ama used video to highlight the challenges and opportunities of living multiculturally.

Rosalba Rigomoto (Year 12 2016) maintains her connection with Narratives of Hope and recently performed in the cast of Who are we? We are. This work in puppetry was a partnership between Narratives of Hope and Elysium Theatre and told the story of refugees coming to Australia. It was ultimately a story of hope. We educate MacKillop Women to be hope and justice for the world. Rosalba shows us how this can be done.​​​
