LACE - First Nations Focus

Project Description

Hello Cool World created a unique transmedia campaign for BC Cancer Agency. The first of its kind to use social media, short film, and grassroots outreach, LACE Campaign (Live Aware, Create Empowerment) turned the tables on the world of ‘ribbon’ branding, and made Pap tests fun (or at least not so bad). In 2011, we received an Award of Excellence in Health Promotion from the BC Medical Association.

In 2010, Lee Anne Deneault won our LACE Campaign ad contest with a concept from her community based on cards with reasons to get your Pap. We travelled to Q'wemptsín Health Society in Kamloops where we did a photoshoot and a video. The materials we created were used to promote Pap Awareness Week all over BC that year. We made a short video, postcards, posters and even had a full page ad in Chatelaine Magazine. Even though the LACE campaign was meant for all women in BC, we were very pleased to have had a high percentage of First Nations communities sign on.

The Super Power Project

Project Description

The Super Power Project was a year-long collaboration with WAVAW to do a youth-driven multi-media campaign using workshops, video, art and social media to raise awareness and gender stereotypes and build skills to prevent aquaintance sexual assault. We worked with two groups of youth: Haisla Nation youth from Kitamaat Village, and diverse urban youth from around Vancouver. The project focussed on moving away from the boy = perpetrator, girl = victim stereotypes, and instead looked at how power dynamics affect sexual 'scripts' among dating youth, on "busting the myths", on the warning signs of abuse in a relationship, and on how friends (i.e. 'bystanders') can intervene to produce positive social change.

SACY: Youth Substance Abuse Prevention in Vancouver

Project Description

SACY (School Age Children and Youth) is an extremely effective program in Vancouver high schools run by the Vancouver School Board and Vancouver Coastal Health, that educates about substance use and abuse with an aim to empower youth to speak up, get smart, stay safe, and to get support when they need it. For this project the Hello Cool World team collaborated with the SACY coordinator and several facilitators, to bring together diverse high school students from all over Vancouver. The goal was to make an up-to-date conversation starter, that feels real and that is clearly about Vancouver. This was done to fill a need for materials that reflected local youth's concerns and contained their voices. For this reason we named the video "Share your Voice."
