The wider community will get an opportunity to learn and reflect on the life experiences of those who have decided to call Australia home through a special project celebrating migrants in Karratha. Developed by Pilbara Community Legal Services migrant service officer Fern Van Beek, the My Migration Story booklets stemmed from a Harmony Week event in March where migrants expressed themselves and their story through art. The 18-page booklet contain images of the residents with their artwork and details their journey of migrating to Australia and Karratha. Ms Van Beek said it was important to shine a light on the City’s multiculturalism. “One of the things about the booklet is that you don’t necessarily realise how multicultural our community is, so it’s all about trying to raise awareness,” she said. “‘Harmony Week is all about bringing people together, encouraging inclusiveness as well as celebrating multiculturalism and I hope these booklets are also able to achieve this.’’ Among those featured was Antonia Ciprani, who migrated to Australia from Italy in 2016. She lived in Broome for two years before making her way to Karratha. Ms Ciprani painted a Kimberley boab tree and said she loved her time there. “I loved the colours, its wonderful sunsets and nature,” she said. “It was an important part of my journey where I could not only find amazing places but also friends that I would probably call more my family.” Ms Van Beek hopes to hold another art-related event for next year’s Harmony Week.
