As part of the Stayin' strong project, Brisbane Indigenous Media Association Projects (BIMA Projects) has released a series of short podcasts about road safety and community health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
In one of the podcast interviews, Research Officer at the Aboriginal Health Council of South Australia, Yvonne Helps, cites the Aboriginal road safety campaign slogan, ‘Bring the mob home safely' (Roads and Traffic Authority, New South Wales) as a key message in addressing statistics suggesting that three times as many Indigenous Australians die on our roads compared to other Australians.
The podcasts have been developed by BIMA Projects as radio messages and short interviews created to provide Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander listeners in Queensland information about road safety in the specific areas of road rage management, child restraints and seatbelts, road rules, fatigue and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
The Stayin' strong project produces twenty audio messages about health issues each month and is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing.
BIMA Projects is a creative team of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander media workers producing culturally-appropriate radio, print and online communications for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of Australia on a broad range of topics including health, education, employment, law, housing and culture.
