Cherbourg Aboriginal Community Healing Space

The Healing Space project was initiated by the Barambah Local Justice Group (BLJG) from the Cherbourg Aboriginal Community. It involves co-designing a dedicated space where community members can find solace during and after Sorry Business.The urgency of this project is prioritised, given the ongoing experiences of youth suicides. Cherbourg epitomises Australia’s history and continuing legacies of Indigenous dispossession, displacement, violence and disempowerment, framed through a narrative of scientific racism and terra nullius. Community-led, co-designed projects, however, are transforming colonial discourses, …

Investigating Visitor Centres for STEM and Environmental Education

Investigating Visitor Centres for STEM And Environmental Education is rarely considered in terms of new models for use of the built environment, and decision-makers lack a reliable knowledge base for aligning their education, digital and physical space decisions. Decision-makers need to effectively integrate an understanding of pedagogic and scholarly activities with space and technology, as well as the needs of funders and the broader community.

Design and manufacture of personalised face filtration respirators using 3D printing

The scale of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent disruption to global supply chains has led to an acute shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) for Queensland healthcare workers. In response, a state-wide taskforce was established in March 2020 to investigate alternative supplies of essential PPE such as face filtration respirators (FFRs), typically N95/P2 face masks which are in high demand for frontline healthcare workers treating respiratory illnesses such as COVID-19.This project aims to develop novel reusable patient and clinician specific-face …

Care in Correction: Promoting Health in Australian Prisons

Half of Australia’s prison population have a disability. Correctional facilities have an opportunity to help people who require health care to recover, and by doing so, increase their likelihood of living independently and not re-offending. International examples show that the incorporation of health facilities into correctional facilities has been beneficial not only to prisoners themselves but to general public health practices as well.This has been especially the case for First Nations peoples in incarceration in Canada and New Zealand. Existing …
