EVERYDAY INTERVENTIONS is a project bringing together communities, artists, and you to start conversations around race-based discrimination and the benefits of diversity.
Watch these videos:
Our artists have been working with people in East Gippsland to create their own short films. They used a set of anagrams – or letters that can be combined in many ways to make different words.
MAKE YOUR OWN VIDEO
We’re now calling on YOU to get together with your own group and create a 1 minute film using the same anagram set. You could win a $2000 cash prize and have your work screened on youtube and at Federation Square.
Entries close 30 May 2015.
STUFF YOU NEED
For detailed guidelines and the anagram set, please download the Info Pack.
There are also links to the anagram letter sets that you can print black on white (can be good if you want to save ink) or white on black (similar to the ones in the videos you can already see)

THINGS TO HELP YOU MAKE YOUR VIDEO
While this is topic that is pretty serious, the discussion and your video don’t have to be serious.
- Your video can be very effective if it makes people feel, is funny, thought provoking, shows inconstancies between what we say and what we do, and could share some facts.
- You only get a short amount of time so pick the ideas that are the strongest from your group and really hone in on them.
- Have a great deal of fun while you do it!
Where did we find the statistics that are at the beginning of each of the everyday interventions videos?
You can find a whole range of information about the harms of race-based discrimination and the benefits of diversity in the reports on the VicHealth website.
We quoted three stats in the initial everyday interventions videos
52% of people would be worried if a family member married an Aboriginal person.

85% of Aboriginal people reported being ignored, treated with suspicion or treated rudely because of their race.

Virtually every Australian with a disability encounters human rights violations at some point in their lives and very many experience it every day.
