New Zealander Now Campaign

The Redefine Refugee Campaign comes as a result of community consultation on the local, regional and national resettlement challenges. These centre on employment, education, health, housing, family lifestyles and involve negative public perceptions, which often stereotype new arrivals, giving them the permanent label of “refugee”.

The ARCC want to change the narrative, redefine the word ‘refugee’. Through the use of beautiful images by photographer NandoAzevedo  and small snippets of information that provide a window into the lives of individuals, this project shows what happens after refuge has been found, the journey as a refugee has ended and the label has been dropped. Click here to learn more.
