Two passionate and talented musicians — one from generations of pioneers to Australia, the other a refugee from Iraq. Through collaboration, Yousif and David discover music can bridge any cultural divide — even conflicting musical scales and different tuning styles. Be prepared for some sweet music of a completely different flavour.

Meet David and Yousif.

Meet+Eat is an online documentary series in which people from very different backgrounds, sit down, share a meal and have a yarn. Meet+Eat explores the charming and compelling stories of people from two of Australia’s most culturally rich and diverse regions of Australia: Hume in Victoria and South Western Sydney – where you can walk down the street and meet the world.

At its core, Meet+Eat is about celebrating diversity. Meet the truck drivers, musicians, comedians, teachers and grandmothers of these places. Over the series, you hear their stories of immigration, identity, personal challenges and personal victories.

Meet+Eat is an initiative of CuriousWorks, with the generous support of VicHealth, Scanlon Foundation, Arts NSW, Australia Council and Hume City Council’s Community Grants Program.

Banksia Gardens play host to two of the most charming groups of ladies we have met yet: the Girls Circle and the Turkish Women’s Group.

In The Deer and the Fawn, we visit Banksia Gardens in Broadmeadows; a dynamic and innovative neighbourhood house in one of Australia’s most culturally diverse areas – Hume.

Banksia Gardens play host to two of the most charming groups of ladies we have met yet: the Girls Circle and the Turkish Women’s Group. When members of the Girls Circle arrange to have lunch with the older Turkish ladies, both parties have surprising reservations about the other.

This story is an insider view of into the sometimes forgotten value of intergenerational exchange.
