On Monday 17 October 2016, young people from PNG who are schooling in Brisbane were hosted by QAGOMA Learning. During the workshop, students were able to connect with each other, and reflect on and celebrate their PNG heritage. The video interviews, facilitated by Julia Mage’au Gray, are part of the Pasifika Youth Workshops exploring identity.
