The Mennonite Heritage Centre Gallery in Winnipeg may be closed to the public as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, but its latest exhibit is available for online viewing. Titled “Breaking the Silence on Domestic Violence 2,” the exhibit features work by amateur and professional artists. It’s the follow-up to a one-day exhibition held at the Winnipeg Art Gallery in November 2018, and it aims to bring the issue of domestic abuse to the wider public.
Mennonite Central Committee’s 2015 Go Purple postcard
As we celebrated Peace Sunday at my church this week, a friend of mine got up during the time of sharing and prayer. He told us that November has been designated Domestic Violence Awareness month in Manitoba, and that in response, Mennonite Central Committee’s Voices for Non-Violence is involved in the “Purple Lights Campaign” to shed light on domestic violence and work on prevention.
