NEW ANTI-SMOKING CAMPAIGN

Ready Mob in collaboration with Naya Ngarra have been developing a community led campaign to tackle smoking. 50 local youth from Biripi, Dunghutti, and Gumbaynggirr country participated in media workshops in July 2016 that will be used in the new campaign that will tackle smoking across Mid North Coast Communities. We would like to thank Larteasha Therese Griffin from Naya Ngarra, also Ian Zaro, Bjorn Stewart, and Colin Kinchela from Black Comedy for supporting  our youth throughout these workshops.

 

Each of the young people not only created the concepts but also starred in all of the advertisements. All of the young people involved finished the workshop with a sense of pride that they had pushed past their own shame job and hesitation to produce 24 amazing campaign clips that will be used to tackle smoking in their own community.

Some of the young people were so inspired by the whole process that they are now planning to pursue acting or production after they finish school. Naya Ngarra has committed to supporting all Indigenous youth that wish to pursue a career in media.
