20. Culture spotting

SYNOPSIS: This story highlights similarities and differences in the features of people from different countries through a fun, voyeuristic activity.

RATIONALE: When I was a teenager, and growing up in a tourist town, friends and I used to play ‘spot the local’. We would sit on the tourist strip and guess the nationality of each person based on their features and mannerisms. When finding out how accurate we were it was enjoyable to both confirm and break cultural stereotypes. People may enjoy contributing media to this story giving audiences an insight into North Queensland’s perspectives regarding people of the world.
