But as the longest running crossfaculty, university community engagement program in Australia, we were not resting on our laurels. In 2016, UTS students and staff successfully completed 66 community projects and 1343 new ‘SOULies’ signed up for community volunteering. In December, we worked with UTS Business School to host a 30-year reunion of Master of Non-Profit and Social Enterprise alumni, many of who are now senior experts in the non-profit sector. As a result, a UTS Not-ForProfit Alumni Network is being developed to support knowledgesharing and ongoing engagement. Social justice has been ‘part of the fabric’ at UTS since our young university started, less than 30 years ago. This core value was reaffirmed in 2016 when we got to work developing a UTS Social Justice Framework to measure impact and guide strategic efforts. The Shopfront team is excited to be part of this university-wide commitment to engage and drive positive social change into the future.

This memorial tells the world that Australia is a country that cares, that is not just defined by fear and greed. Project co-organiser Steve Biddulph ahead of the Siev X Memorial launch in 2007.


UTS Shopfront | Impact 2016 | Refugees Welcome Here

For 20 years UTS Shopfront has supported organisations working on the frontline for refugees and new Australian communities. Since 1996 and over 50 pro bono projects we’ve been there for new waves of refugee communities and for NGOs assisting settlement, advocacy and, more recently, with human rights campaigns around detention. Among UTS Shopfront’s first projects in the late 1990s were with the Timorese Australia Council supporting resettlement for refugees from East Timor — fleeing from Indonesian invasion — in the lead up to Independence.

At the forefront of a thenemerging business model, the ‘social enterprise’, from 1997 to 1999 we worked with Canterbury Bankstown Migrant Resource Centre on business planning to develop a craft and catering cooperative for unemployed migrant and refugee women. (BTW, they provided delicious catering for Shopfront’s 5th birthday party in 2001!) Along the way there were also projects with the Cambodian, Congolese, Sudanese, Tamil, Somali, Afghani, Iraqi, Eritrean and Iranian communities, with a focus on accommodation, training and pathways to employment.

Human rights campaigning was the focus of Damien Spry’s 2007 UTS Shopfront Research Series book, Doing the Rights Thing >, and how refugees and asylum seekers in detention use technology to stay in contact with loved ones was the subject of Linda Leung, Cath Finney Lamb and Liz Emry’s 2009 book in the series, Technology’s Refuge >. Since 2010 we have been part of the shift towards national, campaign-based initiatives aiming to break down stereotypes, and welcome refugees into the community. UTS Shopfront has been part of a number of key lobbying and awareness-raising campaigns, including projects in 2015 and 2016 for national grassroots activist organisation Mums4Refugees, promoting compassion and asserting the human rights of refugees and asylum seekers held in detention.

< In 2001 — under a changing political mood towards refugees in Australia that included the ‘Children Overboard’ affair — a dilapidated Indonesian fishing boat (subsequently named Siev X from ‘Suspected Illegal Entry Vessel’ ) on its way to Australia sank in international waters, and tragically 353 people died. From 2003 to 2004, we worked with the National Siev X Memorial Project to plan this memorial in Canberra for those killed and campaign for a more humane approach to the position of refugees.

> In 2001 and 2002 South Sudanese escaping Sudan’s civil war became the top source country for Australia’s Humanitarian Program and UTS Shopfront was there to support with research and planning projects and even a theatre performance of Sudanese culture, OYE! New Sudan Celebrates, at the New Theatre in 2007. UTS Shopfront | Impact 2016 | Refugees Welcome Here

I don’t know if cinema can save the world. But if it can inspire you to think about things, then it’s not just popcorn. I’d like to do that until I turn grey.

Designing Social Change with Mums4Refugees Through UTS Shopfront, UTS Visual Communication students worked closely with Mums4Refugees to develop both the organisation’s branding and strategic plan.

‘Our War On Women’ had a huge impact, receiving viral support across multiple media channels upon release, including GetUp, Daily Life and The Age newspaper, and has been viewed over 68,000 times on the Mums 4 Refugees Facebook page alone.

Students Alysse Curran, Jonty de Klerk, Siqi Liu, Kenny Mak and Lu Wang created the ‘Our War On Women’ Animation, which visualised women’s lived experiences of the refugee journey and detention.

CHANGING PERCEPTIONS: SAILORS WITH disABILITIES Sailors with disABILITIES (SWD) is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit organisation that uses sailing in a team environment to build the confidence and self-esteem of people with disabilities. All SWD programs are offered free of charge.

UTS students have worked with SWD on three recent projects: Cohesive Visual Branding and Video Design Design students developed a dynamic, cohesive and professional visual identity for use on the SWD website, on their yachts, and on their promotional materials and newsletter. Additionally, they created a short animation communicating SWD’s vision and mission in a highly appealing way. (You can see the video on the right >) Designing an Online Archive Joint winner, 2016 UTS Creative Media Social Justice Award Design students developed the visual identity of the project, showcasing 20 years of history and the evolution of the organisation from hard copy archives discovered in early 2015. A Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Information Management student facilitated the structure of the archive itself. Go to archive >

We’ve worked with UTS Shopfront over three years and the outcomes have been outstanding. The marketing collateral and video the students created were of a very high standard. The online archive received a brilliant response from our online community and supporters in person. The Volunteer Recruitment and Retention Plan enabled us to grow. Working with UTS Shopfront really does make a huge difference to an organisation like ours. Gayle Pescud, Sailors with disABILITIES

Volunteer Recruitment and Retention Plan UMBA students worked with corporate coaches from Ernst & Young to develop a strategy to help utilise and support its current volunteers, as well as attract, better engage, retain and reward volunteers. In 2015 SWD was awarded the Volunteer Management Award by the NSW Minister for Sport. SWD acknowledged the student work as being a key factor in this win.

≥ UTS Design students Maria Yanovsky, Georgia Doust, James Meland-Proctor, Owen Cramp and Brian Nguyen worked with SWD to develop cohesive visual branding and an animated promotional video.

As management consultants we need to be adaptive and forward-thinking and being able to partner with a university that shares those same values means we can get the right benefits from the program too.

UTS Shopfront’s industry coaching program adds an additional layer of expert support for student and community projects, furthering students’ learning experiences and skills development, and enhancing the quality of outcomes for both students and the community clients. The program enables industry experts to enhance their coaching skills and their understanding of the non‑profit sector while providing their expertise pro bono to the community. In 2016, 10 industry professionals participated in the coaching program. This ongoing partnership between the university, industry professionals and the community sector makes same subject coursework distinct from other subjects with a work experience component. Industry impact 95% of community clients report high satisfaction with the outcomes of their engagement. Clients appreciate the specific deliverables, such as communication plans, volunteer recruitment templates, risk management assessment tools that they can directly use in their organisations.

2016 projects included: –Abhi – Datta and Debanjali Sengupta from Ernst & Young working with UTS Business students to develop a feasibility plan, including an examination of resource implications and a scaling-up plan, for the China Australia Millennial Project (CAMP) bilateral business incubator for young leaders. –Bharath – Sattanathan from Accenture working with MBA students to develop a strategic plan and operations review for the Recreation Sports and Aquatic Club, a not-for-profit organisation providing sport, recreation and social activities for people with a disability in South-West Sydney. –Christopher – Wild from Ernst & Young working with Business School students to create a strategic plan for emerging NGO Fishi International’s work to preserve marine wildlife in the Arafura Sea. –Angela – Sedran from Angela Sedran Group working with MBA students to develop an ecommerce and market development plan for Life Interwoven, a social enterprise located in regional NSW working to empower rural artisan communities in SE Asia.

SOCIAL OUTCOMES, STUDENT LEADERSHIP UTS: SOUL Award is UTS Shopfront’s social leadership and volunteer program, giving students the support to venture beyond their degree and into the community. We facilitate volunteer opportunities for students supported and enriched by a series of workshops, seminars and discussion groups that focus on building the skills and confidence required for leadership and community development.

Through SOUL, I began volunteering with a not-for-profit bringing science and art together. I am now helping to set up a science lab and STEM workshops for disadvantaged schools.

Gateways: Sharing knowledge, changing lives. Gateways is published through UTSePress and is jointly edited and managed by UTS Shopfront, Sydney, and Loyola’s Center for Urban Research and Learning in Chicago. This open access journal is at the forefront of global efforts in higher education to bring complex, multi-disciplinary, communityengaged research to a wide audience. It publishes excellence in engaged scholarship and practice in a timely, ethical and accessible manner.

Gateways is all about making a difference around the world, with readers from 85 different countries. Critical to our journal’s ethos is its mentoring program for authors from developing countries. Contributing authors have come from 21 countries, and half from developing countries.

'Culture' as HIV prevention: Indigenous youth speak up! by Ciann Wilson, Vanessa Oliver, Sarah Flicker, Native Youth Sexual Health Network, Tracey Prentice, Randy Jackson, June Larkin, Jean-Paul Restoule, and Claudia Mitchell in Gateways Volume 9 (2016) explores how Indigenous culture is important for resistance, intergenerational healing, empowerment, health and combatting HIV.

In 2016, Gateways Volume 9 was published, featuring engaged research from Canada, Australia, the United States, South Africa, Uganda and Japan. The volume reflected the strengths and challenges experienced by university-community collaborations, explored practical and theoretical implications, and examined the benefits of using arts- and culture-based methodologies when engaging with young people.
