Community services for women survivors of sexual violence

This evening, which took place at the 2014 RIBA Sterling Prize nominated Benzie Building, featured presentations, poetry, music and visual works by survivors of violence.

Manchester-based political singer Claire Mooney performed live while visual scribe agency Scarlet Design recorded the night’s events on visually stunning posters.

Dr Kate Cook led the evening presenting her current work including investigations into the support provided to women by independent sexual violence advisors. Police and Crime Commissioner for Greater Manchester Tony Lloyd was also in attendance and said a few words.

Kate’s book Rape Crisis: Responding to Sexual Violence (co-authored with Helen Jones) was also available to by on the night with the proceeds going to Rape Crisis England & Wales.

‘It has helped to enhance my mind set and will influence my future professional practice as a result.’
