Turn Your Life into Material

Benjamin Law is an expert at turning what he knows into incredible content. He’s turned his memoir The Family Law into an award-winning series, and dug deep into the histories of China and Australia, two countries that made him, in Waltzing the Dragon.

Benjamin shares in Friday’s #RunningFreeSkills what led to him tell his own stories, the pitfalls of putting your life on display, and gives advice to those who have their own stories to tell.

See the full session on ACMI’s YouTube Channel here.

It goes live on Friday 15th May at 10am AEST.
