Protecting community and culture

Two women video tackle myths about the vaccine, discuss the importance of protecting communities and culture, and where others can get more information.

Protecting communities and culture

We collaborated with Rhys Paddick, an illustrator and Budimia, Yamatji and Nyoongar man to help shine a light on the importance of Aboriginal communities getting vaccinated against COVID-19, particularly pregnant women.

Rhys explains why this video is important for Aboriginal communities.

“I wanted to be able to provide visually a reflective conversation between two aunties, having a yarn – about clarity, clarifying and discussing on a broader sense what health means to us.

Two women in the illustrated video tackle myths about the vaccine, discuss the importance of protecting communities and culture, and where others can get more information.

“I liked the idea we can have time and space as people to sit down, have a conversation about misconceptions and the cultural significance of keeping families strong, communities strong and to be ourselves.”

The video is also available in English, Ngaanyatjarra, Martu and Kriol on the Roll up for WA stakeholder toolkit for you to watch, download and share.
