IOW Art Exhibition to raise awareness of DA
The IOW Domestic Abuse Forum have organised an exhibition of art by pupils at two of the Island’s secondary schools to raise awareness of Domestic Abuse at the Quay Arts Centre in Newport.
The exhibition is titled ‘Survive’ and aims to focus attention not just on the scale and impact of domestic abuse, but also on the fact that many victims do survive the experience and with support can move on to have safe and healthy relationships.
Fleur Gardiner, Hampton Trust Domestic Abuse Coordinator, said: “A whole Island approach to educating young people is vital if we are to make real progress against domestic abuse.
"This work takes time to embed, but if we can address abuse and violence in our community in a consistent way then the next generation can only benefit from our efforts.”
The exhibition runs from the 25th Nov for two weeks. Also the Quay Arts will be hosting an Acoustic Original ‘Open Mic’ night on the 25th November at 8pm , which will feature poetry and monologues on Domestic Abuse throughout the evening.
