Place of Courage

Who We Are

Spirit of Woman is a not-for-profit organisation, seeking to end the silence and to raise awareness about the impact of domestic and family violence. We intend to commission a contemporary public artwork and landscaped surrounds in the Adelaide CBD, to create a space that acknowledges the impact of domestic and family violence on people, families, our community and our country. This space is designed to help survivors speak up and eradicate the feeling of being alone. Most importantly, this space will act as a catalyst to start a conversation between people like you and me, so we can face domestic and family violence head on.

Our Mission

Our mission is to commission The Place of Courage, a public space that acknowledges and educates the community about the impact of domestic and family violence.

Our Values

Five pillars guide our activities. These are Community, Stand Together, Education, Spirit, and Lived Experience.

1. Community – We stand in grace, support and love with our community including Aboriginal and Torres Straits Islander and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse communities.

2. Stand Together—reducing domestic and family violence needs everyone standing together, hand in hand.

3. Education –The Place of Courage will be a landmark to inspire all generations to foster a non-violence family culture.

4. Spirit – lies in the core of all social change, and The Place of Courage will epitomise this community spirit.

5. Lived Experience –The Place of Courage will be a public space to share, listen and build trust through honouring and listening to survivors.
