Bourke community to launch awareness campaign targeting alcohol and other drug use

Date posted: 24 April 2012

On Wednesday 2 May 2012, the Bourke Alcohol and drug working group (BAWG) will launch an alcohol and other drug awareness campaign in Bourke, New South Wales (NSW). The launch of the Respect our town awareness campaign will include release of the Evaluation of the Bourke action plan interim report, as well as community-produced health promotion resources.

The interim report into the Bourke alcohol restrictions, which were introduced in February 2009, was conducted by The George Institute for Global Health, and funded by Transport for NSW, Centre for Road Safety (formerly the RTA).

The BAWG worked alongside local high school students, and artist Tonchi McIntosh, to conceptualise some of the messages from the campaign into posters and postcards, aimed not only at the local community but also the tourist trade.

The launch will be held at 10am at Diggers on Darling, on 23 Sturt Street in Bourke, NSW.
