A FEW COMMENTS FROM VIEWERS

"I loved it. Very powerful and such an inspired way to get people talking/thinking about domestic violence — topics which are rarely discussed, let alone in such a public way. It is beautiful and moving. I am looking forward to future art projects from this collaborative."

 

"This was an amazing project to happen at the college to open this important conversation to everyone. I especially like that this wasn’t framed as a 'women’s issue' and made sure to discuss how men need to help to bring about change."

 

"A wonderful and thought-provoking exhibition that inspires both women and men. Thank you for this powerful work."
