If you are a keen knitter, or even a beginner, you can be part of this colourful campaign to raise awareness around domestic violence.

Calling All Agencies

Blacktown City Council is seeking interest from organisations and services in Blacktown and Mount Druitt to participate in a knit bomb of our City. The aim of the project is to create a visually inspiring temporary public art installation to increase awareness about family and domestic violence.

The main installation, co-ordinated by Council, will take place in the Village Green and street scape of Flushcombe Rd, Blacktown.

Your agency/organisation can be part of this collaborative project by knit bombing a tree, bench seat or other suitable structure within proximity of your service.
