In this workshop, which will be conducted by visual artist Sevgi Can Sargın, we will turn the “silent screams” of women, which are unspoken, suppressed, into visual elements and forms, and shout out loud. Participants will apply the compositions they have created using their own cut out forms or ready-made stencils to tote bags with the silk screen technique.

Today, members of the association will conduct the activity “The Blanketed in Blame”, which provides an important opportunity to explore how social norms and discrimination affect the ability of survivors of violence to seek help and access care. It also encourages participants to reflect on what they can do to empathise with survivors of violence.
