trivial feminine pursuits


About the project

‘trivial feminine pursuits…’ (John Ruskin), workshops + exhibition, 2006

An exhibition and auction of artwork as part of ‘White Ribbon Day’, an international day of awareness about domestic violence, to raise money for Oxfordshire Women’s Aid. The exhibition took place at Ruskin College, Oxford from 25 November – 23 December 2006. The artwork was created during workshops with women staying in women’s refuges. There was also artwork by young people involved in offending.

We are grateful to Professor Audrey Mullender, Principal of Ruskin College from 2004 – 2013, who helped make the exhibition happen.

Funded by Thames Valley Partnership and Oxfordshire Youth Offending Service.
