SBS is one of the most unique media organisations in the world today. A media network for all Australians, we have a strong mandate to support, celebrate and appreciate the diversity of Australia’s multicultural society. Our purpose is to inspire social cohesion. SBS is an increasingly important voice in mainstream media that helps bring people together through the power of high-quality and engaging storytelling.
SBS Voices (sbs.com.au/voices) is a home for vibrant discussion and personal storytelling. It is especially focused on supporting emerging writers from diverse cultural backgrounds.

Voices also supports SBS programs by tackling the themes of Commissioned Content in more depth. Examples of SBS original programming include The Hunting, Filthy Rich & Homeless, Struggle Street, and Child Genius.
