Vibe Nation – Stop the Violence

Vibe Nation - Stop the Violence
Vibe Nation - Stop the Violence was made with assistance from the Community Broadcasting Foundation Ltd. Hours of footage was created by working with a multitude of countries who all had common themes to address during their journey of relocation in Perth Western Australia.

Australia now understands that Africans are not violent people and that they are victims of circumstances, victims of relocation and victims of cultural shock. Our community and organization was able to understand the differences in culture and traditional values of various African Tribes living in Perth Western Australia. It enlightened the community about what drives Africans and how to involve various community leaders in mapping a way to assist with the transition into Perth Western Australia.

Enlightened the community

The various community leaders were excited about the programme because it portrays Africans in a negative and positive way which is normal for humanity to have a good side and a bad side. The communities were very happy to be captured on film and broadcast back onto free to air television. They commented how often the community is overlooked and with this project Africans were the focal point which gave the groups a sense of
belonging and strength. Every community involved was happy to be a part of this programme which is exhibited by the smiles on their face throughout the production of

People from multicultural backgrounds often feel like they are not well represented in the media and they look forward to seeing people like them who are prospering in the society and featured in the media. Vibe Nation Stop the Violence highlights the positive impact of our mentors, our
leaders and our community members. We give our viewers the direct opportunity to relate to their own potential.
