02/09/2014 - EU Women's Theatre Discusses Family Violence
Heads of States from around the world got to hear first-hand about the impact of family violence on communities in the Solomon Islands. The EU-funded Stages of Change project uses community theatre to engage women and men in discussions about violence against women and girls; its subtle use of modern physical theatre and traditional Melanesian imagery has won over audiences around the Pacific, enabling communities to engage more openly with what has traditionally been an off-limits subject.
Working together for the Pacific
The European Union, in close cooperation with regional organisations like the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), is funding initiatives that address areas of critical development concern for many Pacific Island nations.
