ELIGIBILITY

Are you enrolled as a Year 11 or 12 students in the Port Macquarie-Hastings Local Government Area in 2019? Are you interested in studying law, design, art, journalism, social sciences or politics?

Then Picture Justice Australia is for you!

We’re inviting Year 11 and 12 students from the schools of the Port Macquarie-Hastings Local Government Area to take part in Picture Justice Australia, a joint research program of Charles Sturt University and Swinburne University of Technology. As researchers, we’re interested in finding out more about what you think about your community, your role as a citizen, and how you participate in democratic processes.

There are 15 places available in 2019.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

In this 6-day program, you will be part of a range of workshops that will focus on the themes of COMMUNITY, CITIZENRY AND PROCESSES OF DEMOCRACY. They include:

  • Design Thinking
  • Introduction to Civics
  • Ethical interviewing
  • Portrait photography
  • Image editing
  • Narrative development
  • Story editing
  • Seminar discussion with community leaders
    (government & non-profit organisations)

Participants will work collaboratively to create written and visual stories based on these themes. These will become part of a projected exhibition and publication, so they can be shared with your community and become a valuable part of your portfolio of work.
