As we approach the 16 Days of Action against Gender-Based Abuse, our collective voice grows stronger against the pervasive issue of gender violence. From November 25th to December 10th, this global campaign amplifies the call for action and solidarity.
In collaboration with the University of Nottingham’s Rights Lab, together with the Survivor Arts Community, engaged with our survivor ambassadors in an inspiring ‘Zine project.’ This innovative initiative involved arts-based workshops, providing survivors with a platform to creatively express their stories. This project consisted of 6 art workshops where participants developed various pieces of art and creative writing.
The project emerged from a call for those with lived experiences to actively contribute to research on the issues that have deeply impacted them. Ensuring ethical practices, the project empowers individuals to share their narratives authentically, avoiding sensationalism and re-traumatisation. This meaningful endeavour reflects our commitment to empowering survivors, promoting healing and building a sense of community among those with lived experience.
Over the course of the 16 Days, captivating artwork will be shared on our Instagram Channel, offering you a visual journey into the narratives of strength, resilience, and empowerment.
The art has been incorporated into a ‘Zine’ and will be exhibited at the Glasgow Zine Library from 24 to 30 November.
