Melbourne City Guide
With Atong Atem

In everything Beulah undertakes, we are defined by civic-minded responsibility, rigorous research, global vision, innovative thinking and a passion for design and culture. We frequently look to a range of industry and thought leaders to share their thinking, insights and perspectives, often drawn from lived experiences. 

With a wealth of inspiration and rich storytelling at our fingertips, we share this with you by way of our Beulah City Guides Series, an exploration of cities around the world, through the eyes of compelling industry and thought leaders. 

Atong Atem is an Ethiopian-born, South Sudanese artist and writer from Bor, living in Narrm/Melbourne. Her work explores postcolonial practices in the diaspora, the relationship between public and private spaces and the politics of looking and being looked at. Atong works primarily with photography and video to also explore migrant narratives, along with the exploration of identity through portraiture.
