Sara Charlton Charitable Foundation (SCCF) and Christie’s are hosting In The Name of Honour, a contemporary art exhibition and educational programme, exploring violence against women and the female body. The event will be running 19th – 22nd September at One Mayfair, London.
In The Name of Honour highlights the need for legislation to be changed in order to outlaw domestic violence. The free educational sessions, hosted by top Criminal Behavioural Analyst Laura Richards, will explore the many facets of domestic abuse, including mental, financial, physical abuse, stalking and honour based violence.
The programme will include victims’ own accounts of abuse, the warning signs and the importance of preventative work, including the need to change attitudes in society as well as aspects of the law.
One in four women in the UK suffers from abuse in their lifetime and 3000 cases of honour-based violence are reported each year. The Sara Charlton Charitable Foundation (SCCF) is dedicated to helping victims of domestic abuse in the UK.
The sessions are open to anyone and free to attend and all works on display are available for purchase.
