I've begun a consultancy with HIVE TELEVISION a project initiated by The Hive Creative Centre Inc, who are sponsored by the Fellowship of Australian Writers (FAW) and the Federal Attorney General's Building Community Resilience Program, so thought I'd tell you a little bit about their new project. (Please note that this information was taken from information written by them).

The Hive Television project will develop the skills of marginalized people in cross-cultural media initiatives. It will utilize and link traditional media, the internet and social media to raise awareness of community issues such as violence, extremism, religious intolerance and the persecution of minority groups.

Hive Television are currently calling for film makers and story tellers (narrative, prose or poetry) from people of diverse cultural backgrounds who have either made a feature film, documentary or short film that has not yet been screened or had cinema release to provide it to Hive Television for audience feedback, film exposure and assistance for future projects. They are also hoping to attract writers who are new to Australia and who wish to express their feelings about their status or lack of it through their creative writing. 

Early in 2013 a meeting will be held to discuss how Hive Television can involve various individuals and organizations to support community projects across Australia that build and reinforce resilience to messages of intolerance and violent extremism and promote inclusive and safe Australian communities. Watch this space because all the information will be placed here.

The Hive Television website may be found here. Please pass on this information to anyone who you think might be interested, or contact: Philip at 382 Bell Street, Preston, Victoria.
