Join multidisciplinary designer/artist NASH as he discusses his insightful guide to immigration.

Most of us know what it’s like to have our hopes dashed on moving house: the excitement fades and we realise the furniture doesn’t fit, the rent is no cheaper, the heating doesn’t work or the neighbours are noisy. But what about when you’re moving to an entirely new country – when it’s you and not your furniture that doesn’t fit? When your qualifications aren’t recognised, the heat is insane and the neighbours yell at you to go back to where you came from?

What to Expect When You’re Immigrating is a hilarious, insightful and often cutting portrait of the ups and downs of moving to Australia. Through brilliant tongue-in-cheek illustrations, celebrated artist NASH provides a compelling, myth-busting, sometimes challenging and always funny how-to guide for new arrivals and those who welcome them.
