In Australia

  • On average, one woman a week is murdered by her current or former partner (ANROWS 2018)
  • Domestic and family violence is the number one cause of homelessness (Ahjazeera 2022)
  • Older women are the fastest growing group to experience homelessness (Census 2016) 
     

Despite the high incidence and impact of both homelessness and domestic violence on Australian women we are rarely confronted with the reality of these issues. Your support can help us to bring visibility to these issues and enact change by enabling us to display UNSEEN and The Lost Petition to Her Place Women’s Museum as part of our Her Voice Festival of Women’s Activism Across the Generations. The project will support not only the physical works activation, but the running of workshops and engagement activities that will deepen the public's knowledge of these issues and rally their support for activism.

UNSEEN is a multimedia project created through a partnership between Blur Projects and the Women’s Electoral Lobby NSW that shares the hidden experiences of women’s homelessness and housing insecurity. UNSEEN offers women who have, or are experiencing homelessness, an opportunity to engage with artists and advocates to generate greater public awareness of the impact homelessness has had or is having on their lives. By sharing their stories, the women provide a first-hand insight into the diversity of who finds themself homeless and why. 

The Lost Petition is a powerful and harrowing work 30-metre-long fabric artwork containing the names of women and children who have lost their lives to male violence, from 2008 until present day. The work has been created by Dans Bain and is a platform for the people most affected by domestic abuse, family violence and gendered violence to be heard. The simultaneous intimacy of the work, signing for the dead, and its scale represent the immediacy of the crises and demands that we act to ensure that the petition doesn’t get any longer.
