Event Details

Australia's National Research Organisation for Women's Safety (ANROWS) and the Tasmanian Government warmly invites you to the free launch of ANROWS's Horizons Report: Promoting community-led responses to violence against immigrant and refugee women in metropolitan and regional Australia.The ASPIRE Project.

The report will be officially launched by Tasmania's Minister for Human Services and Minister for Women, the Hon. Jacquie Petrusma MP, followed by a discussion on its key findings and Tasmania's response to family violence for immigrant and refugee women. Her Excellency Professor the Honourable Kate Warner, AM, Governor of Tasmania, will close the launch.

The ASPIRE Project researches immigrant and refugee women's experiences of violence in different Australian contexts, looking at communities in eight locations across Victoria and Tasmania. The study explores how violence is shaped by local contexts, and examines the impact and dynamics of violence; women’s help-seeking efforts; and communities’ attitudes and responses to violence and its prevention. 

The ASPIRE project also used Photovoice, a creative photographic research method, to document the work of immigrant and refugee women who are leading responses to family violence. A selection of these photos will be on display at the event.

Event details:

  • 10am-10:45am: Registration, morning tea & photo exhibition
  • 10:45am-12:30pm: Report launch and panel discussion with policy experts and service providers
  • Venue: The Jones & Co. room, The Henry Jones Art Hotel, 25 Hunter Street, Hobart.

The research was funded by ANROWS and conducted by the Multicultural Centre for Women’s Health, the University of Melbourne and the University of Tasmania.

This event is co-hosted by ANROWS and the Tasmanian Government.
