Modbury’s Civic Park will become a symbol for change as part of White Ribbon Australia’s 16 days of action against gender-based violence.

Tea Tree Gully Council is calling for community members to help create a 20-metre white ribbon outline on the park to show its stand against domestic violence.

Mayor Marijka Ryan is urging people to get involved in the temporary art installation project made from 2,000 white tree guards, which will run from 9am to sunset from 21 to 24 November.  

"Let's stand up together! By joining, we'll send a powerful visual message that our community does not tolerate any form of domestic or family violence.”

The biodegradable tree guards will be used for community planting projects following the project’s end.

In Australia, one woman dies every nine days from domestic violence. As a White Ribbon-accredited organisation, the City of Tea Tree Gully is unwavering in its commitment to see, talk, offer support and prevent gender-based violence.
