Graduate amplifies the voice of marginalised communities

Curtin Bachelor of Arts graduate Marcus Wong recently won Curtin University’s Young Achievement Award at the 2020 Curtin Alumni Achievement Awards for his work advocating for marginalised communities in Africa, Asia and regional Australia. Both during his degree and after graduation, Wong volunteered his filmmaking, photography and design skills to raise awareness and funding for a children’s home in Uganda and a non-profit organisation supporting women in Ethiopia who have experienced domestic violence. “I never really liked the idea that some people are ‘voiceless’. I think everyone has a voice, but the issue is, we’re not listening. My role as a filmmaker and photographer is to amplify those voices and share their stories to people in places like Australia.”
