Belonging and Identity

Digital Storytelling Collection- Belonging and Identity




A collection of user generated stories, told through the use of multimedia tools, that highlight the sense of identity and the need to belong to a community, as well as illustrating the various communities that exist in Australia. Contributors have combined material from their own personal archives of audio visual material (photographs, video footage, text, music and sound) to produce a 3-4 minute personal story which they have then narrated. This collection contains approximately 50 titles and dates from 2001.

There are some important questions that many people ask themselves throughout their lives. Who are we? What is our identity? Where do we belong? What belongs to us? Do we belong to someone? Do we belong to something? These stories raise many of these questions.
