White Ribbon

The White Ribbon Series will encourage an ongoing heightened awareness in relation to the emotional, psychological and physical effects of violence against women.

The ‘White Ribbon’ is synonymous with ‘saying no’ and preventing male violence against women, in addition to being a crusade to bring about change in perceptions and attitudes.

The ‘White Ribbon’ campaign believes in and supports the capacity of individuals to change themselves and their circumstances, as does the premise of this body of artworks which embodies the distinct belief that awareness can bring social change.

The images combine art with storytelling and are premised on visionary, romanticised, poetic and prophetic potential in artistic commentary to aid understanding on the full spectrum of issues that surround the important topic and various definitions of violence against women.
