Information and resources about ice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
Crystal methamphetamine ('ice') is a growing problem for communities around Australia.
Based on the knowledge shared by community we have developed a variety of resources that
may support and empower individuals and communities who are working to address ice use and related harms.
Take a look at the resources below.
About these resources
We would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of this country and pay our respects to Elders past and present.
For the purposes of this website, we respectfully refer to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as Aboriginal
and Torres Strait Islander. This term ‘peoples’ emphasises the diversity of the many Aboriginal nations and
Torres Strait Islander groups and their language groups, cultures, kinship structures and ways of life.
About the artwork
Jenna Lee is a proud Larrakia, Wardaman and Karajarri woman working as an artist and designer at Gilimbaa,
an Indigenous Creative Agency. Jenna led the development of the designs whilst working closely with the
Cracks in the Ice team. An important aspect of the patterning Jenna designed was acknowledging that
everyone’s journey through crystal methamphetamine (‘ice’) use and recovery is different. It is important to make sure to
never lose sight of the individual in the story. Together, the elements carry a message of empathy, compassion,
cultural strength and diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
