On average, one Australian woman a week is murdered by her current or former partner. One in three women has experienced physical violence by the age of 15.
Voice of Change was founded to amplify the voices of victim-survivors of family violence, to champion meaningful education about – and action against – family violence, and to bring about prevention and change.
The idea for Voice of Change was conceived during the production of The Fort, a movie about a mother and son living with family violence. The subject matter addressed during filming of The Fort impacted the cast and crew greatly, and the closed set provided a safe environment in which to share personal and confronting conversations.
Voice of Change creates arts projects that give a voice to people experiencing – or who have experienced – family violence. Art therapy – a form of expressive therapy that uses the creative process of making art to improve a person’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being – provides the framework for Voice-of-Change’s arts-based approach.
Voice of Change believes everyone has a role to play in preventing family violence, and that education and conversation are key.
