Hepatitis Queensland has launched a small grants program to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander focused services to screen the new hepatitis B film ‘Powerful and Free – an honest conversation about hep B’.

Powerful and Free – An honest conversation about hep B‘ shares the story of a proud First-Nations and South Sea Island woman, Bec, as she bravely and poignantly explores her ongoing journey living with chronic hepatitis B. The core purpose of the film is to de-stigmatise hepatitis B and educate and encourage health-seeking behaviours within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

There are 10 grants of $200 available to cover the costs of catering and screening the film.

Grants can be used to screen the film for staff or the community. For example, your organisation could host a lunch and learn style event for staff. Alternatively, you could host a free event for the community to watch the film and have a yarn.

Hepatitis Queensland staff may also be available to attend events to provide support and education about hepatitis B.

For more information please contact lana@hepqld.asn.au or 07 3846 0020.
