Creative approaches to confront violence

A case study on behaviour change communication 

Friday 17 January 2014, 2.30pm - 4.00pm
Australian Red Cross, 155 Pelham Street, Carlton VIC 3053  

Reporting gender-based violence is only the first step in a sometimes uphill struggle for justice. It's even harder in Kenya's Kibera slum, where women's literacy levels are limited and law enforcement can be less than sympathetic to their circumstances.  

Katy Carlan volunteered with a women's legal and advocacy service in Kibera, using creative approaches to encourage women to report and seek help for violence, and to navigate the path through the police and court system.  

Katy will present a case study that explores:

  • appropriate ways to communicate culturally- sensitive issues
  • strategies for working with low-literacy audiences
  • considerations for gender-sensitive behaviour change programs  


Who should attend?

People working in communications, social and behaviour change marketing, gender, violence prevention and human rights.
