Moving Pictures 2 - Life in the time of coronavirus
Welcome to the March 2020 edition of the Moving Pictures newsletter. In the three months since our last update, the Moving Pictures team has been busy interviewing Greek and Italian carers of people with dementia and key service providers working with these communities. We are now close to completing data collection, and like everyone else, are making adjustments to our plans in the face of COVID-19.

Greek and Italian films and comics

Carlo and Tania, our Italian- and Greek-speaking research assistants, have been working hard to recruit and interview carers and service providers for Moving Pictures Italian and Greek. In Melbourne, they have been greatly assisted by CoAsIt, Fronditha, and Pronia, Whittlesea Councillor Kris Pavlidis and many more. Carlo has also travelled to Sydney and Perth to conduct interviews with help from CoAsIt in Sydney, and MYVISTA, Italian Village Fremantle, and Multicultural Services Centre WA in Western Australia.

Unfortunately, because of the COVID-19 outbreak, our plans to travel to Adelaide for Greek community interviews have had to be shelved. We are grateful to Multicultural Aged Care who were in the process of helping us to organise these. While we are a couple of participants shy of reaching our target for recruitment of Greek carers, we have made the decision to close recruitment in light of the worsening public health crisis.

The next steps will be for the team to analyse the data and develop the storylines for the films and comics. We are looking at virtual alternatives to our stakeholder consultations for the development of the storyboards. A virtual launch of the resources later in the year may also be on the cards, depending on how the situation develops.

We sincerely wish to thank all the organizations, services and individuals who have contributed to Moving Pictures. We are continuously updating the
Moving Pictures website to reflect our wonderful supporters.

With the Greek and Italian interviews all but completed, and the development of the resources in progress, we are looking towards beginning work on the Vietnamese and Spanish language films and comics. In the coming months, we will be hiring Vietnamese- and Spanish-speaking research assistants and beginning recruitment of carers and service providers, pending the situation with COVID-19.
