StoryCasters – Cast the Net. Tell the Story.


StoryCasters is a training hub for future citizen journalists and digital producers. Training in film, music production, podcasting and writing will give you the tools needed to cover all things arts, media, and diversity for Diversity Arts Australia.

Who are the StoryCasters?

You are bold, creative and hungry for accurate, nuanced representation. You’re interested in media – you live it, breath it, and now you want to create it. 

You are a young person (between the age of 18-30) who identifies as being from a culturally and linguistically diverse background or as a person of colour, including people from non-English speaking, migrant and refugee backgrounds.

What’s in it for you?

Training, connection, confidence and pathways. 

The content you produce as a StoryCaster will reach thousands of young people from across Australia, whether it’s podcasts, films, published articles or music. Your work will also be showcased at sharing parties with the entire StoryCasters cohort. In addition to the workshops and content production, you will also get the opportunity to participate in masterclasses, talks and excursions.

As a StoryCaster, you will gain digital media skills and go on assignments with DARTS to spotlight culturally and linguistically diverse artists, practices, arts workers and projects around urban and regional NSW. It’s your chance to flip the script! 

Who’s involved?

This project is an initiative of Diversity Arts Australia, with support from Create NSW and Multicultural NSW.

Partners include Information and Cultural Exchange, Phoenix Eye, Sweatshop Western Sydney Literacy Movement and FBi Radio.
