Dynasty Youth strives to increase understanding between youths and their parents from the African community in Western Australia, and create spaces for young people to connect with one another and discuss issues that are important to them. Dynasty Youth’s project involved empowering young African-Australians to ‘find their voice’ and encouraging them to take part in podcast interviews documenting their life journeys, contributions to society and struggles they have overcome. These recordings were shared with the wider Australian society through podcasts with the aim of increasing understanding about the experiences of young African Australians and countering the negative stereotypes which are often published in the media.

Under the leadership of Willson Kene and Esther Amito, eight members of Dynasty Youth produced a podcast series called Dynasty in Conversation, featuring young members of the African community sharing their autobiographical narratives, perspectives and insights on life.

Mentors Eduardo Cossio and Sarah Booth supported the group to develop their skills in storytelling, interviewing, using professional sound-recording software, soundproofing, editing and marketing. The podcasts were launched publicly in March 2020.
