The Cardinia Casey White Ribbon Group will celebrate White Ribbon Day with an online art gallery and exhibition at the Cardinia Cultural Centre on Friday 19 November.

Artists have been invited to create works in line with this year’s theme – Domestic Violence is isolating.

The Cardinia Art Society has partnered with the White Ribbon Group to collect and curate the artworks.

“The response from artists has been very enthusiastic and a diverse collection has been created,” president Jillian Ronald said.

“I would like to thank the artists for their input to create this unique exhibition.”

The White Ribbon Group leader April Whitelaw thanked the Cardinia Shire for their sponsorship support.

“It will make an interesting exhibition which helps connect the community raising awareness about domestic violence and all forms of abuse,” Ms Whitelaw said.

“After the lockdowns of Covid-19, we are all valuing the reconnections we have made but acknowledge the ongoing isolation felt by some woman due to domestic violence.”

White Ribbon Australia’s vision is to have a nation where every woman is free from all forms of men’s violence and abuse.
