In 2017 we will be zooming out with the proverbial lens to capture/ponder the Bigger Picture of domestic and other forms of gender-based violence. What are we editing out, don't have time for or dismissing as "not my role" that in fact would help us deliver a more meaningful response? Spend two days with us and your colleagues as we explore aspects that factor into the bigger picture of gender-based violence and response. We will hear from The Full Frame Initiative, Futures Without Violence and others on topics including well-being, immigration, sexual coercion and violence, prevention, athletics, procedural justice, bias and culture, trial advocacy and more, highlighting that the whole is indeed greater than the sum of its parts. And yes, we will be screening a film.
