Long-time contributor to the project Tamara Barrow spoke on the importance of involving young people in decisions that affect them and assisted Guardian, Pam Simmons to open and distribute the first copies to the contributors. Pictured getting their copies signed by young contributors are Families SA’s Greg Dart who supported the young people from the Mt Barker office, Rec Cross’s Steven Ingham and Deputy CE (Child Safety) David Waterford from DECD.

 

The CEASEFIRE! comic was officially launched at the Carclew Youth ARTS Centre on Monday 23 June.

It was developed in consultation with 21 young people who worked with artist Richard Dall and writer Daniel Watson over a period of 18 months to produce a comic on resolving conflict.

The launch was organised by the project co-ordinator Jodie Evans to acknowledge the essential role played by the young people from CREATE, Mt Barker and the Noarlunga Nungas.

The comic can be ordered from the materials page of the Guardian’s website for distribution to young people in care by organisations that have endorsed the Charter of Rights .
