Looking Back, Looking Forward

In August 2016 the DAV(e) collective was selected by Hamilton’s Woman Abuse Working Group (WAWG), a coalition of 20+ agencies working to end violence against women, to facilitate an art project for women who are survivors of domestic or sexual violence. We led the women who participated through the creation of mixed-media collages, and with their permission, filmed the process. The resulting artwork and our short documentary video were exhibited at the Art Gallery of Hamilton’s Jean and Ross Fischer Gallery in December 2016.

This project was created by the DAV(e) Collective on behalf of WAWG Hamilton, with project support from the Ontario Women’s Directorate.
