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.
