This page hosts two collections - the No Hidden Door collection and the Voices of Insight Collection

No Hidden Door Collection

The No Hidden Door Collection is a series of original artworks designed to illuminate the importance of making the ‘door’ of responding services/organisations more visible to the public, and valued ongoingly by industry as a social response to victim-survivors of domestic, family and sexualised violence.

Voices of Insight Collection

The Voices of Insight Collection is a series of original artworks inspired by the Insight Exchange Voices of Insight narratives. The initiative is designed to illuminate visual metaphors and symbols used by Insight Exchange participants as part of how they describe their lived experiences of domestic and family violence to inform social, service and systemic responses.

Each of these artworks was developed by collaborating Artist Louise Whelan and is informed by the participants who shared their voices of insight.
