On October 14, Australians will vote in a referendum on whether to recognise Indigenous Australians in the constitution. A group of us at Re strongly believe that a Yes vote would mean unity, recognition and healing for First Nations, and would be a stepping stone to practical progress in Indigenous health, education, employment and housing.
Right now, up to 40% of Australian voters are yet to decide, so in the weeks leading up to the referendum, we’re aiming to share the reasons we’re voting Yes, and reach as many people as possible.
Re is proud to have helped develop the #CreateYes campaign in collaboration with leading creative agencies and design studios across the country. The idea for Create Yes is a simple one. People are invited to design the word ‘Yes’ in their own way. It can be type, illustration, motion, photography, video – whatever they like – and to share it on social media tagging @create.yes, #createyes and @yes23au along with why they’re voting Yes.
This week we’ll be sharing creations from members of our team along with their reasons for voting Yes across our social media.
Visit the Create Yes website to register for the national launch event and submit your own Yes.
