About The Event

Mayase Jere brings Zambian Bemba proverbs to life through stories of migrant journeys. Her early childhood was spent with her grandmother who loved using Bemba proverbs to chastise her. Some days, she feels as though she is losing her grandmother's teachings. These stories, inspired by the proverbs, are Mayase’s way of remembering her roots and sharing Bemba with the world. The stories may be fictional but they include highly emotional, disturbing, and at times light-hearted incidents that Mayase, her friends, and many others who have migrated from their home countries, experienced. The common theme is everyone’s migrant journey is unique – particularly here in Australia. Some are similar but with a different set of troubles, sorrows, financial stresses, and happiness sprinkled here and there.
