Lived Experience Casting Call

YWCA Australia is looking for women with lived and living experience of homelessness and housing insecurity to be involved in an exciting project. We are after diverse women who are confident talkers to tell their stories on camera to an experienced media producer and team. The footage will be edited and appear as part of an online course which will be the first of its kind!

The interactive and self-directed course will be built around the voices of women with lived experience and designed to equip participants with the knowledge, advocacy skills and opportunities to drive change to end homelessness and housing insecurity for women.

We want the voice of women with lived and living experience of homelessness and housing insecurity to help us bring this course to life. Participants will be remunerated $400 plus travel costs for a half-day shoot in Sydney or Melbourne.

Want to get involved? Fill in the form below and a YWCA Australia team member will be in touch.

UPDATE: we have received a great response to this casting call, and have closed expressions of interest. If you want to be considered for future opportunities for lived experience voices, please fill out the below form.
