Antibiotic Wise: Say NAAAH! Campaign

Project Description

We have teamed up with Antibotic Wise and the BC Centre for Disease Control on their "Say NAAAH!" Campaign. It is important to only use antibiotics when they are needed. While antibiotics are warranted for some dental procedures, many toothaches and oral infections do not require antibiotics. However, based on your procedure and medical history, your dentist may recommend an antibiotic. Always let your dentist know about any medical conditions or changes to your health. In addition, antibiotics do not work for viruses like the flu. These two campaigns have been getting high visibility on the Vancouver transit platforms and in buses! We have also created several videos.
 

Coyotes Food Medicine

Project Description

Storytelling has always been a traditional way to share knowledge and wisdom. Now we have new tools to share old ways, and to take on new problems. In July 2016, Secwepemc Elders were asked to help develop a teaching story about prescription medicine, This story reflects some of the cultural teachers/animals of the Secwepemc’ulcw people.
From this conversation the story of Coyote’s Food Medicines emerged. Coyote is on a mission to collect medicines - but will everything go as planned? Often stories include the Trickster character, who can be both humorous and heroic, helping to teach through its mix of cunning, foolishness and ambition.

Let's Involve Women in Village Budgeting! e-Course

Project Description

We developed an e-learning course for Oxfam Canada that was part of a larger “Power Up” women’s empowerment project in Indonesia, which encourages women’s participation in the budgeting process. This interactive module inspires women to get the issues they care about on the village agenda and funded, while providing tips on how to navigate the process and overcome barriers.
 
To make the process more relatable and overcome low literacy barriers, we created a series of animated videos following the journey of a young Indonesian woman expecting her first child. The responsive HTML 5 course is optimized for mobile users and will be made available online as a web-application or it can downloaded offline as a free-standing module for desktop users. The videos with both Indonesian and English closed captions are also be available. This project has been very well received in the Indonesian villages it was intended for.
