Open City Stories is an online storytelling project 12 months in the making, in partnership with writer Rajith Savanadasa. It is an initiative of the Darebin Ethnic Communities Council and the City of Darebin and seeks to give voice to Australia’s marginalised asylum seeker community. Easton States started work on Open City Stories last year and will coordinate this ongoing project, overseeing the writing (Rajith Savanadasa), design (CC&Co), web development (Twin Brother), and social media (Larissa Ocampo).
