Hume White Ribbon Animation Project

White_Ribbon_edit_1

In November and December 2015, Gee Lee-Wik Doleen Gallery hosted an innovative community project to support Hume’s commitment to White Ribbon Day.

Stop-motion animator Gregg Brown worked with four different groups, including schools, community groups and Hume Council Staff, to create a series of short films that address key themes of the White Ribbon message.

Each group was asked to respond to one of the following themes:

RESPECT     EQUALITY    PREVENTION    1 IN 3 (*1 in 3 Australian women will experience physical and/or sexual violence perpetrated by someone they know)

White Ribbon is Australia’s leading campaign to stop violence against women.

This project aims to foster discussion, reflection and collaboration on the path to creative and affirmative responses to one of the toughest issues facing contemporary society world-wide.

The four Hume-based groups involved in this project are:

  • Good People Act Now (GPAN) group at Banksia Gardens. GPAN is a youth action group where trained members develop and deliver prevention of violence against women activities, supported by Gandel Philanthropy and the Department of Justice.
  • Mount Ridley Secondary College – a group of students who have just completed the LOVE BITES program. LOVE BITES is a school-based domestic and family violence and sexual assault prevention program delivered by NAPCAN. 

The completed films were screened continuously in Gee Lee-Wik Doleen Gallery as part of Hume White Ribbon Day 25 November, up until 23 December 2015.
