With strong feelings we are announcing the world premiere of Thieves in Our Home!

Thieves in Our Home shows Aunty Hazel, the founder of the Grandmothers Against Removal, as she explains how it feels when Aboriginal children are forcibly taken away as part of an ongoing process of colonization in Australia. This film is an exploration of radical intimacies inviting us to listen and see a whole world of beauty and resistance in the eyes of one of the most impressive activist grandmothers. Created by an international group of socially engaged individuals Thieves in Our Home is also a rare document of international solidarity with Australian Aboriginal people.

The film was created by an international group of committed academics, students, practitioners and activists who came together at the Memefest Radical Intimacies: Dialogue in Our Times event in 2014 on the land of the Kulin Nation in Melbourne.

The Film premiere will be: Tuesday 11.2.2020 @ Capitol Theatre Main Stage at 4pm.

The screening is part of the Activism@ the margins, stories of survival, resistance and social change event. Find our more about the event here: https://activism2020.eventcreate.com/

I most certainly have some strong feelings...


Hey, welcome to the official Memefest blog!

Since 2003 we have been using a blog platform as tactical media to reflect, critique, comment and inform around the broad field of communication. Now in 2010 with our newly conceived on-line platform we hope that through time this space will evolve in a collaborative blog media with a wider group of contributors to the global discourse around social responsibility of media and communication. Stuff that you can find here is either original or carefully and originally edited from other sources.  There is a good chance that you will find things that will be of good use for you too if you follow us more regularly.

Of course we look at Memeblog as a dialogic platform. Your comments are encouraged and mostly welcome.

If you feel like collaborating in this: drop us a line: memefest at memefest dot org.
