This resource was made by youth from Fairfield Intensive English Centre (IEC). We worked closely with the newly arrived youth from communities at high risk of chronic hepatitis B. Youth were coached on hepatitis B education and its link to liver cancer. A creative producer was engaged to work with the youth in developing innovative messaging in raising awareness of CALD communities at risk of chronic hepatitis B.
The youth created art pieces including photography, posters, paintings and a video detailing hepatitis B messages for the community. The artwork depicts a range of innovative messages that address the issues surrounding stigma, myths and misconceptions associated with chronic hepatitis B and liver cancer.
The students have also developed a booklet resource with information on hepatitis B, provided by Cancer Council, and which contains the students’ artwork.
