For those who would like support, or ideas and tools to develop their own creative work in response to their experience of GBV, there will be online creative workshops and drop-in virtual creative cafés with writers and artists.
All workshops and creative cafés will take place online, except for Walking and Storytelling, which will take place in Stanmer Park, Brighton. Workshops are currently intended for UK-based women (including transgender women and non-binary people), but there will be the option to run separate workshops for men if required.
Project lead, Dr Lesley Murray, Associate Professor in Sociology, said: "Restriction of movement generated by the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a reconfiguration of patterns of gender-based violence. This transdisciplinary project will analyse stories of GBV that will help us unravel hidden tragedies and enable us to raise awareness, inform policy and generate meaningful and urgent change."
The project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) as part of the UK Research and Innovation rapid response to Covid-19.
