S5 & S6 Pupils from schools throughout North Ayrshire have created a lasting legacy in the ongoing campaign against domestic violence.

The piece of art was created throughout the Expect Respect Conference, held in Irvine in December 2018, as part of the 16 Days of Action White Ribbon Campaign.

The young people wanted to create an important and lasting message from the conference which explored ways to eliminate both Violence Against Women and Gender-Based Violence.

Inspired by Scotland’s Year of Young People, the event put terms such as ‘domestic abuse’ and ‘coercion’ into language that was relevant to the 100 young people who attended and heard from a range of speakers, with some of the key discussions recorded on the graffiti display.

The artwork will now be placed on display at St Matthew’s Academy to allow students the chance to see some of the key messages which were discussed.
