Swansea is a very multicultural city, and many people who are here often follow different paths than the rest of their family.
This can sometimes cause misunderstanding as families with traditional values feel threatened by the “Western” culture of their children, while the younger generation feel their older relatives are trying to restrict them.
Most often, there isn’t actually a problem – there is just a problem of communication surrounding expectations.
This is what I am trying to solve through a short DVD film. Through an event in Swansea, I am interviewing a variety of people from across the city to establish their stories, their culture, and how they feel within their families and culture.
I will then be taking this DVD with me to workshops, where I will get families communicating and understanding each other.
I want to thank everyone at the team who has worked with me on this project to gather people together.
