The Victorian Government has launched its latest campaign in support of Victoria’s path to treaty, and truth and justice. Created by Clemenger BBDO Melbourne, Deadly & Proud follows the Deadly Questions campaign that launched in 2018 in the lead-up to treaty legislation entering the Victorian Parliament.
Deadly Questions helped Victorians answer their questions about Aboriginal cultures and build connections. Deadly & Proud deadlyandproud.com.au encourages Victorians to be proud of Aboriginal cultures, resilience and communities and Victoria’s path to treaty, truth and justice.
Traditional Owners and Aboriginal Victorians tell their stories of pride across regional Victoria and metro Melbourne. Stories cover everything from the ancient eels traps at Budj Bim to contemporary Aboriginal comic book culture.
The majority of the stories were filmed before Victoria’s lockdown, and are mapped to the place where each storyteller has a unique connection to the land. The map itself was created by Aboriginal artists from organic materials found across Victoria, including water from the Murray River, sand from Squeaky Beach at Wilsons Promontory and charcoal from Lake Condah.
The Deadly & Proud storytellers and advocates are Archie Roach, Cienan Muir, Courtney Ugle, Aunty Edna Stewart, Aunty Fay Carter, Garey Foley, Jadah Pleiter, Uncle Jonny Lovett, Keisha Day, Kristy Dickinson, Marcus Stewart, Miranda Tapsell, Muriel Bamblett, Aunty Muriel Williams, Phillip ‘Philly’ Murray, Stephen Thorpe, Aunty Susan Martin, Tony Armstrong, Tracey Rigney, Trent Nelson and Tyson Lovett-Murray.
Treaty Branch, Executive Director, Elly Patira said Deadly & Proud represents a pivotal moment of transition in how we communicate Victoria’s path to treaty, and truth and justice.
“As more and more Victorians gain a deeper understanding of Victoria’s Aboriginal cultures and our state’s history, we can move forward from a simple conversation into pride and engagement with our local Aboriginal communities and our collective path to treaty.”
Clemenger BBDO Melbourne creative director, Hilary Badger, added, “Many of us are more familiar with European cultures than the our own Aboriginal cultures. This campaign is a chance for all Victorians to see Aboriginal cultures as something we can share. Our mutual history isn’t comfortable but the way forward is to start talking about it. And there are also so many contemporary stories to explore. To film them, on country, is one of the creative opportunities of a lifetime.”
The campaign launches today and will run across TV, digital, social, OOH, PR and more. For further information, visit deadlyandproud.com.au.
