White Ribbon Day
Ballarat residents are invited to attend the White Ribbon Day community
picnic on Wednesday 25 November. The event will be held in Alfred Deakin
Place, Camp Street between 5.30 - 7.30pm.
White Ribbon Day is an international day for the elimination of violence
against women. The Day began in 1991 when a group of Canadian men
started a white ribbon campaign following the massacre of 14 women in
Montreal. The campaign has been supported in Ballarat since 2004.
At the picnic local White Ribbon ambassadors will discuss how they have
educated their community about domestic violence. There will also be a
performance by the Sweet Monas Choir.
The 2009 local ambassadors will also be inducted at the picnic, they
include Shaun Maloney, Chris Carpenter, Geoff Howard, Roger Trudgeon,
Professor Terry Lloyd, Graham Hoad and Peter Appleton.
Anyone attending the community picnic will be encouraged to bring rugs,
chairs, food and non-alcoholic drinks. The Ballarat White Ribbon Day
Committee will also provide a barbeque.
Ballarat White Ribbon is about to have its own website thanks to the
University of Ballarat's Bachelor of Visual Arts (Graphic
Design/Multimedia) students. The second year students produced five
design concepts which will be on display at the community picnic. The
committee has selected its preferred concept and the completed website
will also be unveiled at the event.
