Violence Unseen exhibition opening for 16 Days of Action

For the 16 Days of Action Against Gender Based Violence this year, in association with the local White Ribbon campaign, Dumfries and Galloway College is hosting a national photography exhibit called Violence Unseen.

In Dumfries, in the Kaleidoscope area by the library, the exhibition will run from Monday to Friday December 6, launched with a twilight event at from 4-6pm on the first day.

It includes a short talk about the White Ribbon campaign by Spanish lecturer and local White Ribbon coordinator, Luis Pombo, plus a screening of the short film ‘Killing Us Softly’ about gender bias in the media.

The exhibition, put on by Zero Tolerance, explores hidden forms of violence, with award-winning photographer Alicia Bruce.

They have worked with groups and individuals affected by men’s violence to create photographs that seek to represent the experiences of women who are too often unheard.

Both the exhibit and the event will be replicated in Stranraer from 12-2pm on Monday December 9.
