A Global Perspective with BiograView

"BiograView, Perspectives from around the globe" aims to approach the inevitable blending of cultures from a positive perspective. Ingrid van Amsterdam and Charlotte Giblin chat about some of the stories that feature in the newest edition, and more.

Airing time: Saturdays, 5pm.



"BiograViewPerspectives from around the globe" aims to approach the inevitable blending of cultures from a positive perspective. Now is the perfect opportunity to learn from each other and to enrich our knowledge and resources. We all have something positive to bring to the table. It’s time to acknowledge each other in peace. BiograView is a platform for individuals from foreign countries from all walks of life who wish to share their experiences, achievements and challenges while adapting to a place they now call ‘homeland’. And as this gives us an opportunity to to see a glimpse into different cultures, we can only celebrate the drive and determination and what it takes to succeed in a strange world. This new, monthly magazine was inspired by HOMELANDS THEN & NOW (2018), a book containing migrant stories written on behalf of Migrant Connections Taranaki, New Zealand. Broken down, the word ‘BiograView’ is a combination of biography and view."
