Aboriginal Project @ACON

 

A new series of Indigenous health resources was launched today by the ACON Aboriginal Project as part of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander HIV Awareness Week. The Aboriginal Project encompasses health promotion for, by and with Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islander people of diverse sexuality and gender, especially those living with HIV, or at highest risk of being affected by HIV. The Project aims to build knowledge and skills-based resilience, health and wellbeing via a culturally appropriate model of holistic health that recognises emotional, spiritual, social and mental wellbeing. The team also work with different groups to tackle racism in the community.

To celebrate the launch, special guests, elders and families were invited to a lunch and performance by Gumaroy Newman and brother Mike. Here they are in full flight performing a series of traditional dances for the crowd. Deadly!

Red Ribbon Revisited

Red Ribbon Revisited

It’s the Return of the Red Ribbon!

Excited to announce we’re the lucky recipients of a NSW Health + South Eastern Sydney Local Health District grant to raise HIV awareness for World AIDS Day 2015 #WAD2015.

The Red Ribbon took on celebrity status in Sydney back in 2012 as we toured festivals and events raising HIV awareness. Everyone from ministers to mayors, neurologists to nurses, actors, artists and activists proudly wore the Ribbon.

Check out our gorgeous gallery!

We were privileged to meet these incredible people in 2012 and we can’t wait to get started this year!  We’ll be focusing on the South Eastern Sydney district this year: Kogarah, Rockdale, St.George, Hurstville and Sutherland.

To get involved go to our Facebook page to see where we’ll be heading between 28 November 28 and 2 December. Come and get wrapped in the Ribbon!
