Social Action

My art therapy work involves working with victims of trauma. For 16 Days of Activism, a UN initiative to end violence against women and girls, I worked with survivors of domestic abuse across Bedfordshire to learn what freedom from meant for them. This was an act of validation as the main form of support offered, ‘The Freedom Programme’, places its focus on the perpetrator. Knowing this, it felt necessary to refocus.
