What does respect mean to you?

We are hearing a lot of negative rhetoric, insults and bigotry of late. And words matter.

#campaignforrespect encourages us to rethink the meaning of respect and how we respect others. By reminding ourselves of the crucial role respect plays in our daily lives, we can change the conversation to be one that is more tolerant, inclusive and accepting of others. Let’s treat each other with mutual respect in our homes, locally and in the broader community. Everybody has their own unique story to tell.

We just need to listen.

About #campaignforrespect

“Every now and then, a brand has to step up and make a statement that goes to the core of their values as a business.” – Anthony Roberts, Managing Director

#campaignforrespect is launching with an exhibition of thought provoking portraits by renowned Australian photographer Nick Leary.

Nick Leary’s raw and captivating portraits perfectly capture the areas where the conversation around respect is most critical; religion, race, gender, sexual equality and age discrimination.

The portraits will also feature in a major outdoor campaign that traverses the Eastern seaboard and travels all the way to Times Square in New York to promote a more positive, inclusive message.

Celebrated Australians will be adding their voice to the conversation in social media, sharing their personal thoughts on the crucial role respect plays in our lives and communities.

About Porter Davis

“Our ethos ‘Respect the Dream’ is what we’re known for, but we’re not just building someone’s dream home. We’re building the foundation for happy, healthy communities” – Joanne Bradley, Head of Brand & Marketing

Porter Davis isn’t just any building company. We started out wanting to make a difference to how customers were treated. That DNA lives on in our business. It’s driven by our founder, expressed in our belief and reflected in our manifesto and comes to life in how we treat you.

We think what we do matters, because a new home is so much more than bricks and mortar. We believe a new home is the foundation to the picture of how life should and can be.

It promises the future and it frames the past. It stands strong when the dream may weaken. It flexes to change, stays steady when life runs wild.

To us, the idea of a home goes way beyond construction, or service, or design or style. It’s the very cornerstone of life’s hopes and aspirations.

At Porter Davis, we understand and respect that it’s a brave thing to create one’s dreams around a new home. We appreciate the fragility of such visions and we exist to protect and nurture those dreams.

It’s why above all we exist to respect the dream.
