Posters to Re­claim the Night

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

LO­CAL res­i­dents are in­vited to the Whit­sun­day Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre (WNC) next Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 17, to paint signs and posters for the forth­com­ing ‘Re­claim the Night’ march in Air­lie Beach.

Re­claim the Night is a rally where women and the com­mu­nity stand up and raise aware­ness about vi­o­lence. The rally will be held on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 25 and it is part of a raft of ac­tiv­i­ties run through­out Oc­to­ber, which is Sex­ual Vi­o­lence Aware­ness Month (SVAM).

WNC fam­ily sup­port worker San­dra Kelly said the poster and sign paint­ing ses­sion was a free event that was about en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to cre­ate their own signs for dis­play dur­ing the march.

“We would like to in­vite as many com­mu­nity mem­bers as pos­si­ble to par­tic­i­pate in the march and this is some­thing they can join with oth­ers to do to put their own mes­sages across,” she said.

All ma­te­ri­als and af­ter­noon tea will be pro­vided. The paint­ing ses­sion will be held in the cen­tre’s En­deav­our Room from 1-4.30pm.

For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact the Whit­sun­day Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre on 4946 7850.
