The City of Gosnells is seeking local residents from migrant backgrounds to share their stories and resettlement experiences in Australia, as part of a new video project to be launched during Harmony Week celebrations next year.

It is hoped the City of Gosnells Migrant Stories video will include a wide range of local residents from migrant backgrounds, reflecting all groups in our community.

Mayor Terresa Lynes said the video would provide a great opportunity for the wider community to gain an understanding of some of the different experiences of our local multicultural community members.

“The City of Gosnells is among the most culturally diverse local government areas in greater Perth, with more than 43 per cent of residents born overseas and almost a third of residents speaking a language other than English at home,” she said.

“Migrant stories are a significant part of who we are in the City of Gosnells, and this project seeks to capture some of the experiences that unite our community and make us special.”

Expressions of interest from anyone willing to share their stories for the project can be submitted via the City’s website at, by Monday 10 January.

Migrant Stories will be produced by the City and is funded by an Inclusive Communities Grant from the Department of Social Services.
