Event description
Violence Unseen - exhibition, workshop and panel discussion exploring forms of violence against women

About this Event

Gender Equal Media Scotland, in association with Strathclyde Student Union, the Equality & Diversity Service, and Equally Safe @ Strathclyde, will be hosting Zero Tolerance’s powerful Violence Unseen exhibition. The event will take place at the Scottish Universities Insight Institute at the University of Strathclyde.

This photography exhibition explores forms of violence against women that are still misunderstood, hidden and unacknowledged by mainstream society. Alongside the exhibition, we will be hosting a workshop to explore ‘The News as It Should Be’ and a panel discussion and Q&A, details of which can be found below.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at info[at]genderequalmedia.scot

Location: Scottish Universities Insight Institute, 22 Richmond Street, Glasgow, G1 1XQ

Schedule:

10am – 2pm: Violence Unseen Exhibition open to the public

Please note that some of the content in the exhibition deals with sexual violence, abuse and exploitation which some people may find upsetting. Some of the women featured in the pictures are models.

2pm – 4pm: The News as It Should Be Workshop

The aim of this interactive workshop is to explore the representation of women in the news and examine how the current media landscape contributes to the continuum of gender-based violence. Participants will dissect, reshape and remodel selected articles and imagery from magazines and newspapers to create alternative, empowering content to inform new standards for reporting.

4pm – 6pm: Panel Discussion and Q&A
