This subject explores the theoretical framework related to advocacy and activism as the basis for engaging in practical advocacy activities. The main focus of the subject is to engage students in a specific project to assist Indigenous organisational settings. This involves identifying an organisation where there is a clear need for the development of advocacy and communication strategies. Students develop a tailored advocacy strategy including consideration of appropriate tactics and development, and application of advocacy and communication skills.
