    The challenge

    Conversations about death and dying are hard to have. That's why we wanted to shed light on the incredible and uplifting stories of people who represent the very best of quality palliative care.

    The process

    We created the ‘Matters of Life and Death’ platform to stimulate thought and interest, and spark uncommon conversations about death and dying amongst all Australians.

    The change

    Our social impact campaign features a series of videos which showcases the memorable, the comical, the poignant and the practical. The campaign delivers insights on life, death, and everything in between.

    We asked for a bold campaign that invited the community to engage with sensitive material, the team at CRE8IVE delivered, but more than that they cared about what they were doing.
