SBS - Australia's Special Broadcasting Service. A hybrid funded public broadcasting radio and television network has done much to create and promote a multicultural Australian identity. And more than anyone else, they have inspired today's drawing. SBS, for me, has always been living proof, part of the cultural air we breathe, that shows that embracing multiculturalism is much better for assimilation for everyone. An Australia without SBS feels like an arid place to me, limited and stagnant. It shows how awesome things can be when diversity is encouraged and diverse people aren't just spoken about, they're given spaces to speak for themselves.
"The World is an Amazing Place" I loved growing up, growing into, that SBS slogan.
6 Billion Stories and Counting is the new slogan, and that's pretty good too and it was cool to cruise around youtube and find new ways SBS is finding to communicate a diverse and complex world.
But "The world is an amazing place" will always be dear to my heart.
I didn't mean to turn this into a big rave about how much I like SBS, but they gave me, amongst many things, "The World is an Amazing Place" and that is a message worth repeating. This is something the Things embody. It is a phrase that can get you through many dark days.
The world is an amazing place.
