‘Dignity’ is about bringing dignity to the forefront of human service and social justice work. (Centre for Response-Based Practice, Canada, Dignity 2016)
For only the second time, the 2017 international Dignity Conference will be held outside of Canada, when Perth hosts the event from 22-24 May at the Esplanade Hotel in Fremantle.
This conference will be a significant milestone as the Women’s Council will celebrate 40 years (1977-2017) of bringing ‘dignity’ back into the lives of women and children who have survived family and domestic violence.
International speakers, and performance artists from Canada, Aotearoa (NZ), Sweden, the USA and Australia will be invited to make this an occasion to remember by sharing with us the many and diverse ways women and children resist violence.
