06.03.06 - 7pm Artist talks

A discussion of the work of the Australian collective boat-people.org.

"The 'We are all Boat People' campaign is concerned in the broadest sense with the mental health of Australia. In our analysis, what we are facing is not so much a refugee problem as a crisis of xenophobia, a terrible and contagious national sickness. The border panic policies of our government are clearly designed to spread fear and hatred, disseminated through brilliant manipulation of the unspeakable psychoses of an occupying nation secretly uncertain of its own legitimacy...

The 'We are all Boat People' campaign uses this multi-function website as our primary organising tool, and we also make embodied, realtime media spectacles to contest the idea of 'otherness', the demonisation, of people seeking refuge here. On this website you can find an activist toolkit and many other goodies to download and spread the idea. We have received nearly 3,000 visits a month this year, and the Boat People image/text has spread to every city, and many regional centres. 'We are all Boat People' offline events have occurred to date in Sydney, Adelaide and Perth, and received mainstream and indymedia attention, though we would like to increase this significantly. Stay tuned. Or better still, tune in and join us. "
