Month of Action (including another Butterfly Walk)

November (and it’s immediate surrounding weekends) is known as the Month of Action on Domestic Violence in the city of Onkaparinga. I have taken part in three activities this year, culminating yesterday in the Butterfly Walk, which has featured here before and before and before. I find it really uplifting to participate in these activities. It’s great to be part of community activities that help to make changes in attitudes in the wider world as well as in individuals’ lives. Another activity I attended was the launch of the latest Photovoice project. This provides women who have experienced dv with a chance to express their feelings and explore what has happened to them using photography. I had the chance to take someone with me who is currently in a domestic violence relationship. She found it very powerful. (I went to last year’s launch too.) I also went to a breakfast fundraiser (hadn’t done that before) at the beautiful Victory Hotel at Sellicks. This is the only time the hotel opens for breakfast all year – it’s fantastic that businesses and all parts of the community are part of this effort. Again there were inspiring speakers and the chance to take more photos.

Here is a selection from the (50000!!) snaps I took (firstly from the Butterfly Walk)…

 

Here are some from the breakfast…

And finally some shots of the Photovoice launch…
