To celebrate the launch of SBS's new drama series, Sunshine, we’ve teamed up with the Centre for Contemporary Photography and Brimbank City Council to give people a chance to tell the story of their community through photographs.
Whether they work, live or study in Sunshine, or have a strong connection to the suburb, they'll be learning the basics of photography to help prepare them to create a series for exhibition.

About the series:
Sunshine is a four-part drama series set in the working class Melbourne suburb of Sunshine. It is in this humble suburb that our South Sudanese protagonist, Jacob Garang, resides; a star basketballer with dreams of becoming a pro-basketball player.
Running parallel to Jacob’s sporting aspirations and life within Sunshine’s South Sudanese community is a high-stakes criminal investigation. Police are hunting down the perpetrator of a violent assault, which has left a young teenage girl from the prestigious suburb of Templestowe in a coma fighting for her life.
Sunshine is a vibrant, kinetic and compelling hybrid drama that explores a world of contrasts - truth and reconstruction, past and present, hope and heartbreak – felt by those forging a new life in a foreign land.
The series premieres on SBS in October 2017.
