Almost 1000 posters and postcards displaying anti-violence messages and key support information will be distributed to workplaces and agencies across the Border over coming months.
The resources form stage two of a prevention campaign run by the Zonta Club of Albury-Wodonga which received a grant during the Border Trust Big Give.
Earlier this year discrete fold-up emergency brochures, designed in conjunction with Albury Wodonga Health, were distributed to police and other front-line workers.
Now Zonta are ready to take their posters public, to be distributed to almost 100 locations.
Zonta members are aiming to reach as far as Howlong with the resources and president Joanna Metzger said it would not be the end of the group’s advocacy on this issue.
“Zonta was invited to be part of the Albury Wodonga Family and Domestic Violence Committee about eight months ago and we’ve sat on three meetings so far,” she said.
“The LoveBites program was something we were interested in four years ago and now through a partnership with that program we’ve been able to use students’ artwork.”
The club reached out to the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation about using the artist’s Crying Girl graphic for their signature poster but were denied access.
Ms Metzger instead reached out to a graphic designer known to her from Melbourne and Zonta’s own design came to be, printed by Thomson's Graphipress in Albury.
Vice-president Alison Veld said the designs were effective but not confronting.
“We have used the Step Out Albury-Wodonga logo and also some neutral images, because it can be men or women using violence,” she said.
“Joanne became president in 2014 and her passion has really driven this project.”
