Colours of Wollongong: Journalism & Photography

As part of my university journalism portfolio, I started a project known as “Colours of Wollongong.” This project was a dedicated effort to spotlight and extend support to local LGBTQ+ and Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander artists and their creative endeavours. The central theme revolved around conducting comprehensive interviews with the featured artists, crafting insightful feature articles for each, and actively engaging in social media marketing to amplify their stories.

This project resonated deeply with my passions and encapsulated the work I find fulfilling—utilising my skills to bolster and uplift the local arts and culture community within my reach. It underscores the power of journalism in supporting and celebrating the diversity and talent present in the local creative landscape.
