VICTIMS of violence and abuse will for the very first time in Malaysia have a platform to share their struggles, pain and survival through the art of doodling.
The Women’s Centre for Change (WCC)’s ‘My Story, My Strength: Doodle for change’ project offers women whose lives have been impacted by violence to share their personal stories either verbally or in writing while individuals above 18 regardless of gender can just doodle.
The first part of the project is the ‘Share Your Story’ which will see verbal or written stories illustrated into doodle art.
The second part is the ‘My Story, My Strength’ competition which invites Malaysians above 18 to submit doodle-art drawings to depict their stories.
Its project coordinator Lor Yew Mien said: “The closing date for the ‘Share Your Story’ is May 15 while the contest deadline is June 30.”
