Rainbow Bridge is an online resource for Queenslanders of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds who are also Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender (LGBT). Responding to a gap in readily-available information and support, the Queensland Association for Healthy Communities Inc. (Healthy Communities) sought funding from the Queensland Government’s Department of Communities to develop the website as a starting point for CALD LGBT persons to access. The site is aimed at newly arrived Queenslanders as well as students and tourists from overseas.
Liveworm were approached to assist in bringing all of the information gathered by Healthy Communities online. Liveworm student Amanda Heloey (pictured above left with Healthy Communities LGBT Multicultural Project Officer Sophiaan Subhan at the 2012 Brisbane Pride Festival) was responsible for the design of the Rainbow Bridge branding as well as promotional collateral and of course the website. The website was launched during the 2012 Brisbane Pride Festival and was the first ever Liveworm project launch to include a drag queen performance!

Sustainable Environment through Culture in the Asia Pacific (SECAP) is a research initiative of the Queensland College of Art (QCA), Griffith University. The objectives of SECAP include multi-disciplinary approaches to the visual arts that are cognisant of UNESCO’s 2001 Declaration on Cultural Diversity that notes: ‘culture should be regarded as the set of distinctive spiritual, material, intellectual, and emotional features of society or a social group, and that it encompasses, in addition to art and literature, lifestyles, ways of living together, value systems, traditions and beliefs.’
Liveworm has been involved in several SECAP publications and have now developed a website to chronicle the activities of QCA researchers. You can find the website here.
