Project O drives change in rural communities affected by family violence.
Through this primary prevention program young women develop new skills and learn how to create change in their community.
It helps prevent family violence by shifting the culture in communities affected by the issue.
Project O currently operates in 4 communities: Wynyard, TAS, Cooma, NSW, Roebourne, WA and Canberra, ACT.
Colourathon is a fun and vibrant art-marathon raising funds to assist young children experiencing violence.
This flagship event is organised by the young women of Project O, and brings artists, musicians, families, communities and leaders together to raise awareness and funds for family violence prevention.
Based on Ophelia’s story in Hamlet, “O” play makes use of a dark metaphor hidden in Shakespeare. There are 31,000 words in Hamlet, and Ophelia is given about 1,000 – a literary glass ceiling. Development for the theatrical work occurs in the community setting, with an acclaimed writer, director and performer weaving the personal stories of participants into the stage presentation: a reframing of Ophelia’s narrative, driven by young women.
