Working in sustainable, equitable ongoing partnerships with priority popluations who experience being marginalised requires understanding the cultural and social ways that messages have meaning. The workshop will provide a safe, fun and action orientated opportunity to investigate and examine appropriate ways that public health mesages are developed and utilised to raise awareness about specific health and social health needs for women, Indigenous Australians and people living with chronic health and mental health conditions.
