Mosaic heart-making workshop – in honour of women and girls who’ve lost their lives to male violence – Saturday 19th February, Your Space Sutton
About this event
A woman is killed every three days by male violence in the UK. In the wake of Sarah Everard’s murder, there has been a growing movement both here in Sutton and nationally to end violence against women and girls (VAWG).
MOSAIC HEART-MAKING WORKSHOP (minimum age 8+) Led by Reclaim Sutton’s Streets with local artists Samia Tossio and Hana Horack, you will be able to make your own mosaic heart to take away while taking part in conversations raising awareness of this global issue.
Everyone is welcome at the workshops and we encourage men to join us. The workshops are supported by Sutton Council in line with its commitment to tackling domestic abuse and violence against women and girls. The Council also works with a range of partners to deliver domestic abuse services across the borough and is currently seeking White Ribbon accreditation.
The workshops are your chance to get involved in the conversation in a heartfelt way and are also a precursor to the creation of a beautiful mosaic memorial bench, being designed by the artists and installed by Sutton Council, to remember all women and girls killed by male violence. The bench will be placed in Sutton High Street’s Trinity Square in time for International Women’s Day on 8th March.
Trigger warning. Violence against women and girls is a serious matter. The minimum age for the workshop is 8 years. We ask parents to use their discretion as to what is age-appropriate for their child and understand that some parents may feel the workshop will not be appropriate for their child or children, though we will guide the conversations sensitively.
