The Lost Petition is a powerful and profoundly moving multi-media exhibition, focused on the vital need to end violence against women and children.

Created by artist and activist Dans Bain, in collaboration with award winning researcher and journalist Sherele Moody of the The RED HEART Campaign, at the centre of this arresting exhibition is The Lost Petition Artwork – a 30-metre list of names lost to gendered violence since 2008, written on bedsheets.

The exhibition also features a peaceful reflective installation called The Living Room; photos and stories of women and children lost to violence and the voices of their families; a special red heart tribute to the 75 lives lost this year and interactive elements for visitors to engage with.

In displaying the Lost Petition at Her Place, we hope to strengthen the work of activists, families and survivors and stop more names from being added to this list.
