Showcasing the innovation and impact of health justice partnerships is a key objective of our first national conference. To be part of this showcase, we invite health justice partnerships to submit a poster for display and discussion across the two days of the conference.
HJP practitioners have told us they want less ‘talking heads’ and more opportunities for discussion at this conference.
Through visually engaging HJP posters, you can demonstrate your work and maximise the engagement with the many and varied ways HJPs are operating across Australia.
Why a poster
Health justice practitioners suggested posters as a way to ensure a highly interactive and participatory conference. Posters are a great way to give every health justice partnership the chance to to demonstrate their work; and to give people attending the conference the chance to understand the depth and variety of ways these partnerships are operating across the country.
Posters are unusual in legal settings but are regularly used in the health sector to present key information at conferences. Through these poster displays, we are hoping to build the capability of health justice partnerships to talk about their work in a range of ways to a range of different audiences.
Completing a poster should also assist practitioners from that HJP to participate in conference workshops on topics like outcomes measurement and working in partnership.
Designing your HJP poster
- Participate in our HJP survey. Once you complete the survey, including your email address, a digest of your responses will be returned to you to inform your poster content. See our example below for suggestions about how you can use your survey answers in your poster.
- Set out a narrative that best describes your HJP: its value, successes, or lessons learned about how best to meet community need.
- Find images that complement your narrative. Talk with your partners about what images might be useful. Even organisational logos can break up text.
NB organisations may need signoff for publications or logos. Leave time for this!
Check out this HJP poster example from an American health justice partnership supporting children in Durham (North Carolina). But remember:
Less text + more imagery = greater impact

- HJPs must submit a poster and have a representative/s attending the conference for at least one day.
