After an incredibly inspired effort from my local community of shop owners and creatives in Fitzroy last year, I wanted to support White Ribbon Night again in 2016.

Despite the efforts of organisations like White Ribbon, heartbreaking stories keep coming about continued violence committed against women.

In Australia, one woman every week is killed by a current or former partner.

White Ribbon Australia is an initiative started by men to educate men and young boys early to prevent this behaviour from starting in the first place. I wanted to support the  cause the best way I know how, which is to help spread the word about White Ribbon’s work, but also to collect homewares, fashion, food experiences and art works to sell off at auction on social media.

Thanks to the following big names for your support of Fitzroy White Ribbon Night 2016:
