Raise the Rate of Newstart

St Vincent de Paul

An animation from St Vincent de Paul shows the daily reality of the Newstart Allowance.
Translating complex data about poverty and income into easily understood visuals has always been a challenge, for researchers and advocates alike. What does a decent standard of living ‘look’ like? How do we depict poverty without the stereotypical unwashed, sad faces looking up at a lens?
These were the kinds of questions faced by SilverSun Pictures when creating a video for St Vincent de Paul Canberra about the reality of living – or trying to live – on the current Newstart Allowance.
