Fresh Faced Friday is a concept which was developed by a group of young people involved in the ABC Heywire program.
It was through a FRRR ABC Heywire Youth Innovation Grants that ALDAF and TINO were able to develop FFF into a reality in conjunction with the group of young people who created FFF concept. Creating a day full of celebrating being who we want to be judgement free
With schools, community group and individuals getting involved across Australia, a whole lot of body and self positivity was spread on the day.
We hope you will join us this FFF, 6th September 2019, and help us all 'Tear Up' the negative and reframe our thinking to get body and self positive.
Body image is your attitude towards your body - how you see yourself, how you think and feel about the way you look and how you think others perceive you.
Feeling good about your self and your body image is important because people who do will generally have a higher level of physical and psychological health, and better personal development, impacting on many other areas of our life such as self esteem, outlook on life, self-acceptance and relationships.
The Fresh Faced Friday’s campaign is about making sure the positive gets much more airtime in our minds and conversation than the negative – allowing us to feel comfortable in who we are.
By Joining the campaign you are helping raise awareness of this important topic and showing your support for others to also take a Fresh Faced Friday look at how they see, think, feel and talk about themselves and their body image.
The original Fresh Faced Friday concept was created by an awesome group of young people who were instrumental in the first few years of developing and promoting the campaign across Australia. Whilst this awesome group are now off living great adventures and starting amazing careers we still aim to spread their good thoughts far and wide through the campaign.
