No One Way To Be Asian In Australia: Alice Pung, Leanne Hall & Rebecca Lim in Conversation

This episode of the Stella Podcast features the recording of a panel event titled No One Way To Be Asian In Australia, held at Northcote High School on Thursday 23 February. Stella Schools Manager Bec Kavanagh and Stella Ambassadors Alice Pung, Leanne Hall and Rebecca Lim discuss the danger in presenting a single story of a culture or group of people, and talk about how can we push back against cultural stereotypes and generalisations of what it means to grow up Asian in Australia.

This panel is a part of the Stella Schools Provocations, a series of online content to stimulate discussion and deepen understanding around a range of issues pertinent to young people, the society they are growing up in and the particular challenges they face. Each provocation will be discussed by three writers at a launch panel, which is recorded for the Stella Podcast, and a series on the Schools Blog will further explore the theme.
