Conceived by Helen Oxenham OAM, The Place of Courage is a ground breaking public art project that will provide a place for grieving, healing, education and hope. We believe this space will kick-start a movement of social change that shines a public light on domestic and family violence in our society.
Domestic and family violence is often linked to a range of individual and societal problems like alcoholism, drug-taking, homelessness, and mental health illnesses (such as depression and anxiety). Tackling domestic and family violence will help to:
• Reduce the associated murder rate, abuse and inter-generational trauma,
• Reduce alcohol and substance abuse, and
• Alleviate some of the burden on our support agencies and not-for-profits.
Tackling domestic and family violence is key to creating a more functional society on many levels.
We are committed to raising $250,000 to bring The Place of Courage, in partnership with the Adelaide City Council, to the South Australian Parklands – and we implore you to help us reach our goal. With your support, and that of SA-based businesses, corporations and government, we can make a measurable social impact that transforms the discourse around violence in the home.
To support our fundraising awareness campaign, we are calling on you to participate in our slogan campaign – Operation Courage. This campaign is a way that we can mobilse the SA community to step up and speak out about domestic and family violence by spreading messages of courage. By getting involved, you will be a voice for our community and will stand in strength and solidarity against violence in the home.
