Key Creatives

Chanel Biala

Chanel Biala (she/her) is a Filipino-Australian creative based in Liverpool and Parramatta. From doing videography and photography with local government and organisations to writing and directing her own short films, a predominant theme that occurs through her work is her love for Western Sydney. Inspired by her culture and surrounding diverse community, she likes to explore themes of coming-of-age, identity and belonging through a fun, bright and colourful lens. At a young age, Chanel found her love for photography and videography and as a result, she aims to encourage and foster the creative visions and interests of young people.

Partners and Supporters

This project is delivered in partnership between Utp and Community Minds and is supported by the Doing It Differently Grants Program offered by South Western Sydney Local Health District, Canterbury Bankstown Council and Bankstown Community Resource Group (BCRG).
