We were pleased receive this letter from a representative of "Buddies Refugee Support Group" from the Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia:
I want to share some good news with you.
Even though the Sunshine Coast Council has declined to accept our proposal for declaration of a Refugee Welcome Zone, we were able to play your powerful and evocative song and film clip at a Multicultural Conversations Project forum being lead by the Council. Buddies is a partner in this project.
The forum was a day long event at the university, addressed by a number of dignitaries (including state and local government members) and key note speakers. The objective of the project is to develop an action plan to enhance the strength from the existing multicultural community on the Coast, representing 156 countries, 96 languages and 45 faiths, and to address the barriers to their full and equal participation in the community.
We finished the forum with the screening of your song - to leave the almost 100 attendees contemplating your powerful message: "It could be you"!
Thank you once again for composing and sharing this wonderful song.
