Melbourne: School of Media and Communication (RMIT)

This report builds on the 2011 evaluation of the Kimberley Girl program. The program (which incorporates the Pilbara Girl program) uses popular culture, including the image making aspects of the fashion industry, to connect with young women on their own terms. Through a catwalk show and an embedded personal development program, participants can imagine and enact positive life choices. Topics covered by this report include:

  • introduction to the evaluation and program
  • keys to the program’s success
  • benefits to participants
  • benefits to community and region
  • media production and engagement
  • participant feedback
  • recommendations.
