ABOUT US

South Asian Today is Australia's first multimedia platform for South Asian women and non-binary peoples.

Being founded in Australia, we pay our respects to the traditional owners of the land - past, present and emerging. We recognise their ongoing connection to land, waters and culture. Sovereignty was never ceded.  

We platform, empower and strengthen South Asian community through mixed media ways of storytelling. Born out of lack of representation for our narratives, South Asian Today aims to be a space where artists can collaborate, write, film, produce podcasts and share their work and commentary.

We are feminist and believe in shattering patriarchal norms that have long dominated and stunted our growth.

We do not shy away from talking about politics. As an inclusive space, our goal is to solidify diversity within our own communities and pass on the mic to those who have not been given enough chances to tell their stories.

We are aware of a lot of spaces online where most South Asia ends up being just India and lot of Indians are represented in Bindis alone.

South Asian Today wants to break that cycle and push for narratives where South Asia is seen beyond one lens– where we are all kinds, not just one.

Being conscious of caste, class, gender & religion divides, we stand tall and proud with our team of writers, designers and creatives who hail from different communities from different parts of the world.

We understand not every South Asian creative wants to write on race and gender. This space is very much inclusive of those who are great at what they do and the world must take notice.

That being said, we do not tolerate casteism, Islamophobia, homophobia, xenophobia, anti-Blackness et al.
