Event: Domestic Violence And The Arts

15Apr09

Date: July 1st, 200
Time: 10am – 4pm
Location: The Quad, Derby

Do the Right Thing have organised their second annual day of effective use of the art when working within domestic violence.

Workshops include, music, dance, performance, poetry, drama, art therapy, writing, film and more.

We all know the depressing and challenging stats on domestic violence. It is in the home that 1 in 4 women will experience violence in their lifetime from a partner or ex-partner; domestic violence makes up a quarter of all violent crime and has the highest repeat victimisation rate of any crime; domestic violence kills two women every week; and in 90% of domestic violence cases, children are in the same or next room.

However, if we are to tackle domestic violence as a society, it is crucial that we work effectively and therapeutically, not only with victims, survivors and children, but also to raise awareness among all adults and children: and that means targeting all our communities and schools.

And one of the most effective ways of achieving all this is through the use of the creative arts. This essential and unique conference celebrates and showcases how this can happen.

Go to the Do the Right Thing site to find out more about individual workshops and the running order of the day, and to book a place online.
