Creative Approaches to Health Information Ecologies

Video script

Dr Vaughan Wozniak-O’Connor: We are researchers from the University of New South Wales, Sydney. This video is about our new study, ‘Creative Approaches to Health Information Ecologies’. Contributing your insights will help paint a new picture of what health information is and what health information means. Join your peers and have your story be part of this creative project. If you currently live in Australia and are 18 years of age or older, we want to hear from you.

What does it involve?

Dr Ash Watson: Taking part involves one workshop, in person at UNSW Sydney, with a small group of other people. This will take about one hour to complete. We will video-record the workshop, and you will receive a $50 gift card as a thanks for taking part.

Who do I contact?

Dr Vaughan Wozniak-O’Connor: If you would like some information or to express your interest in participating, please get in touch via phone or email. You can contact Vaughan from the research team at or 0437 727 769.

Why is this study being done?

Dr Ash Watson: There is a lot to learn about health from people’s bodies, from their senses, their feelings, the world around them, and from their interactions with art.

If you take part in this phase of the project, you’ll interact with some artworks that creatively represent the connections between health, wellbeing, community and the environment. Then, you’ll discuss this art together: what it made you think of and feel, and about the presentation of the pieces. You don’t need to know anything about art to take part.

Dr Vaughan Wozniak-O’Connor: Once again, you can contact Vaughan from the research team at or 0437 727 769.
