Toowoomba signs up to stand against violence with launch of White Wall
Supporters of the campaign, including local businesses Tomoro, Salt Studios, London Heir, Copylam Services, Discovery Coaches and Edit Hair Lab added their signature and pledge to be never silent, never violent to the wall.
With statistics showing one in three Australian women experiencing violence in their lifetime, and one woman dying every week from domestic violence, it’s everyone’s responsibility to shine light on this issue.
The public art piece aims to unite and engage the entire Toowoomba community and raise vital awareness, which is why everyone is invited to add their signature and pledge to the wall.
The White Wall will be located at Edit Hair Lab, 78 Russell Street and is open to the public during Edit’s opening hours (closed Sunday and Monday, open all other days).
Also at the event last night, young Toowoomba artist London Heir launched the final in her triptych series depicting the story of a domestic violence victim.
These powerfully crafted illustrations will be auctioned at the White Night event on 4 March, with proceeds going to Unite in White partner Toowoomba Says No 2 Violence (TSN2V). London’s illustrations will be on display at Edit Hair Lab until 4 March.
Now only a month away, excitement is building about the White Night event, where guests dressed all in white will be treated to dinner at a secret location featuring the Darling Downs’ freshest seasonal produce prepared by a team of executive chefs, fine wines, and amazing local entertainment.
Tickets to the White Night event are $160 and are inclusive of transport, with a portion of the ticket sales going to TSN2V. They are selling fast so don’t miss the chance to be part of what is sure to be one of the Toowoomba region’s most spectacular and unforgettable nights.
