TASTE CREATIVE
Taste Creative was started by two passionate storytellers who wanted to make the world a better place through story – as simple as that.

Beginning from scratch with nothing but a vision and ambition, Henry and Genevieve began working at two desks side-by-side in an office the size of a shoebox in Sydney’s Inner West. We began working with clients to create film, animation, digital and print projects.

But there was a problem.
We were surrounded by people that because of their origin, mental health or learning ability faced barriers into the creative industry that are almost impossible to break through.

So we had to do something.
Using the tools we had, we began holding filmmaking workshops for marginalised communities.

This quickly evolved into what is today, Bus Stop Films; a not for profit social enterprise dedicated to building the confidence, English skills and life ready skills of refugees, people with persistent mental health challenges and people with physical and intellectual disabilities, through a high-end film school experience.

We began opening up pathways through our projects at Taste for students to go on further and gain industry experience and employment. We call this inclusive creative.

Today, we continue our mission to fight for inclusion in the creative industry and advocate for human rights through storytelling by partnering with organisations of all sizes to create great content.

We all have an opportunity to make a difference through being inclusive.
