A garden of healing, reflection, education and activism to support and recognise Australians touched by domestic violence, to be accessibly located in the heart of the City of Adelaide. The space could include a water-feature, statue, mosaics, and landscaping sensitive to victims and their families. It would be located in the Adelaide Park Lands, close to the seats of power such as Parliament House, and public transport. Domestic violence touches all Australians. We are all connected to someone who has experienced domestic violence, or have personal experience firsthand. There is much need to awareness raising around this epidemic.

Australian Local Government Womens' Association SA Branch fully supports the initiative put forward by Priscilla. It would be a peaceful place for victims of domestic violence to sit, communicate with others affected by Domestic Violence and reflect on the past and look forward to the future.

This will ensure a physical and somewhat aesthetically space for all humanity to acknowledge and give recognition to all persons from the past, who struggled with domestic violence, but did mot have the legal or cultural resources to protect themselves. For those in the present and future....to remind and educate, that now that these legal and cultural resources are available ......it will infinitely educate the perception of all persons that violence at any level or stance is not an acceptable life to be lived and support for change will be inevitable.

Fantastic idea, this type of thing is required not only as a beautiful space to share and enjoy but also to recognise a human situation that has been ignored and unrecognised for too long in our society. This is a true step forward for humankind. Thank you to the creators and supporters of this fabulous idea.

What a wonderful idea......and so important to all those touched by domestic violence. And that is all of us.
Such a beautiful place to raise awareness, and also to offer hope and some measure of healing.
