In modern-day Australia what does resilience look like for people who aren't white and middle class? Resilience is a word bandied around by schools, poitical leaders and community groups, but what does day-to-day resilience look like to so many of us? This session will look at the notion of resilience, and how the word is applied. Our lens will fall on those experienceing homelessness, new country and from youth to the aged.
