----  Deadline Monday, 30th September  ----
The recent waves of racist hysteria sweeping Australia have silenced and 
laid siege to ethnic communities across this country. The recent furore over 
the conviction of some young Arab Muslim men for raping white women in 
Melbourne, is a perfect example of this. Media discourse and governmental 
compliance have resulted in entire communities being criminalized and 
presented a perfect opening for another deluge of repressive panic about 
?Middle Eastern barbarism?. It is important to note that this comes on the 
back of our racist border protection policy and the bogus ?war on terror?.

In this context, it becomes important to provide a means for those most 
affected by this racism to SPEAK OUT and SPEAK BACK. Collage hopes to 
provide such a space. If you a person of colour, of a background other than 
English and/ or Indigenous, we want you to express your thoughts, emotions, 
anger, rage, sadness, and critique the society that envelopes you.


We are seeking contributions in the form of critical reportage, creative 
writing pieces, text and graphic-based artworks, photos and personal 
accounts. The word limit is 2500 words but we will consider longer pieces.
We are also hoping to collate contributions from students, academia and the 
wider community. We would like to see as much diversity as possible.


If you are interested in participating in the creation of Collage contact us 
on the details below. Whatever your area of expertise, whether that be 
editing, writing or fundraising, WE WANT YOU!
