An exhibition of portraits of Australian Indigenous women who came together to share stories of cultural and spiritual responses to family & domestic violence and sexual assault in communities across Australia and the Pacific. The forum provided a platform for women to discuss how community, religion, authority and family create silences around these issues.
A multi-award-winning artist, Belinda Mason has worked with emerging artists with disability or disadvantage to create acclaimed collaborative and inclusive multimedia exhibitions for the past two decades. In 2016 & 2018, Belinda presented at a parallel event of the United Nation Commission on the Status of Women in New York, the United Nations Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disability in Geneva 2016 and World Conference on Indigenous Persons in New York in 2014, United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva 2013.
