Express your Interest | online creative workshop series to develop new eye health promotion resources

Would you like to contribute to the development of eye health promotion resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples?

Share a journey of connections and creativity in a series of online workshops to develop the ‘look, feel and messaging’.

Indigenous Eye Health (IEH) plans to develop additional culturally appropriate eye health promotion resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

The new health promotion resources will assist primary health care providers, including Aboriginal Health Workers and Practitioners, to promote regular eye checks and awareness of refractive error and cataract.

These resources will build on IEH’s existing health promotion resources and tools that support the improvements in eye health system reform activities in regional collaborations across Australia.

Planned Activities

In 2022, IEH will support the following activities:

  • Participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples from across Australia in a series of online creative workshops to co-design the resources through sharing of their knowledge, expertise and lived experience
  • Develop culturally appropriate health promotion resources including print and digital materials for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and primary care health providers
  • Undertake national rollout of the new resources alongside existing resources to support ‘Roadmap’ health system reform activities through regional collaborations across Australia

IEH and the Project Steering Group will be holding a series of four online creative workshops via Zoom between April – June 2022 and are reaching out to connect 12- 15 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples with an interest in, knowledge of, or lived experience in eye health (e.g. cataract) to inform key messages, themes, branding through a fun and creative journey.
