This pilot project was run in two communities in north-east Victoria from January 2017 to March 2018. The pilot aimed to equip young people with the knowledge and confidence to become active bystanders in the prevention of men’s violence against women.
Participants in Benalla took part in a series of workshops, contributed to the organisation of their local community White Ribbon March and developed three bystander videos and a factsheet on technology facilitated abuse.
In collaboration with Gateway Healthy, a group of young men from Albury-Wodonga were also supported to take part in a series of workshops on domestic and family violence and respectful relationships. For their final project the group chose to write and produce a music video discouraging violence against women in the community.
