The Journey to Healing and Empowerment:

an exhibition of art by Niagara Students

Organized by the Coalition to End Violence Against Women in collaboration with Rodman Hall Art Centre

On Display March 6 to 8, 2015
Opening Reception March 6 at 4 pm
and Closing Reception March 8 at 2 pm

After briefings with regional counsellors on domestic and dating violence, students from four area high schools have created artworks in response to the issue. This exhibition organized by the regional Coalition to End Violence Against Women, builds on the dialogue begun with the “Violence Against Women 365 International Poster Exhibition” mounted at Rodman Hall in 2012. This showcase of challenging works by Niagara’s student artists coincides with International Women’s Day on Sunday, March 8.
