Transform hearts. Embrace diversity.
This positive project encouraged students to draw what ‘respect’ looks like and asked what ‘respect’ meant to them on campus.
Racism experienced by young people can influence physical and mental health outcomes throughout life (VicHealth). How do you play a part in making our society a respectful one?
As a result of this project, over 180 cards were collected, displaying powerful and moving drawings by students of what respect looked like to them. During this campaign, it also found that:
- 71% of participants experienced a form of racism on campus
- 70% of participants said there needed to be more awareness raising on campus.
Postcards with drawings that represent 'respect', completed by student participants.
