The Pilgrimage of Origin is a journey through the diversity of Australia’s cultures. Together on a bus, we journey for 4 days, spending time with a range of communities that have established themselves in Australia after seeking asylum.
Targeted at high – school aged young people, the Pilgrimage of Origin has been shaped by influencers such as Abdi Aden (Author of Shining: A lucky Man), ASRC and a range of our neighbours who now call Australia Home.
