Over the last 12 years, during the daytime, Linh Phan has been developing personal creative arts, culture and media projects, while at nighttime running DJs events and DJing throughout the city. These are a selections of some of the diverse works she's been developing.
HERE & THERE
Here and There explores the experiences of Vietnamese refugees and immigrants through community generated digital media. This content, alongside other supporting media, is housed on a highly designed and interactive web platform, appealing to tech and culture savvy users.
The community content is created by the older generation (community participant) with their younger relative (community facilitator) facilitating the filmmaking process and the production of the final product. The community facilitator will attend a week-long training session to prepare them for the filmmaking process with the community participant.
Over the past few years, I have worked in Vietnam with various Vietnamese marginalised communities, helping them to create films about their lives and the struggles they face, using the digital storytelling method. I have come to know this as a very powerful tool and using this method will help to shape the story from two different perspectives to create a unique story in the community participant’s own voice.
