A few weeks ago, Jane, Suzanne and I caught up in beautiful Gerroa on the NSW South Coast for a workshop on the semiotics of wellness and well-being. We wanted to identify how ideas of wellness and well-being are currently expressed in Australian culture. Gerroa proved to be an inspirational spot! We found that marketers of wellness products should bear in mind that there are at least 4 different interpretations of what this word and concept mean swirling around in Australian material and visual culture.
