Through this project 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 that the Commonwealth Government designates as family violence hotspots.
Project O is designed by Big hART, an organisation recognised for its violence prevention projects, and the recipient of 8 COAG awards.
Project O is currently being piloted in Wynyard, Tasmania.
Project O takes an asset approach, building on the strengths of the community, and backing the potential of the young women who live there.
The Colourathon is a 24-hour arts endurance event, designed to raise money for specialist trauma therapy services for children in women’s shelters.
This flagship event is organised by the young women of Project O, and brings artists, musicians, animators together with families, communities and leaders to raise awareness about family violence.
