In celebration of Global Human Solidarity Day today, meet a new generation of young Muslim artists.
They use their work to explore issues of faith and identity and what it means to be Muslim and Australian in the 21st century.
You See Monsters is a film about the power of art to challenge assumptions, subvert racism and change the way we view the world.
Through art, these artists are fighting back to assert their own agency in the face of anti-Islamic bigotry.
Not with defensive or apologetic arguments, but on the front foot, using the power of their imaginations to create works of art.
With it they are challenging the nation to take a long hard look at it itself.
