Artwork The Lost Petition arrives at Parliament on Monday morning to call for action from the Federal Parliament of Australia to address the issue of violence against women and children ahead of Budget Day.
Kim for Canberra will be lending support to the Lost Petition event, and we encourage volunteers to join us. Advancing Gender Equity and women's safety is one of Kim's core policies.
The artwork, by Melbourne-based artist Dans Bain, is a 30-metre-long fabric artwork, listing all of the names of women and children who have lost their lives to gendered violence since 2008.
“We need to see all levels of government improve policies, funding, education and introduce initiatives in an effort to prevent violence against women and children,” said The Lost Petition artist Dans Bain.
