Violence Against Women: Using Interactive Performance to Inspire Change Public

Downloadable Content

open in viewer

Rates of gendered violence are high in the Australian city of Hume. To help create a shift in generational attitudes towards this problem, we worked with Good People Act Now (GPAN) to create educational materials on this subject, targeting local youth. We researched effective strategies for anti-violence programs, and we chose interactive performance, developing a script on how texting can be used to inflict violence against women. These materials were presented at community events; audience feedback was collected to improve the presentation and to inform a future video production. Additionally, recruitment materials were created and a website updated to disseminate the materials and increase GPAN membership.
