Zero Tolerance is looking for a creative practitioner to lead a piece of work in collaboration with partner organisations to enhance public understanding of men’s violence against women and girls.
Using Zero Tolerance’s 1992 slogans, and posters as a starting point, the artist practitioner will create new visual materials, taking on board intersectional practice. This will involve working with a number of different partner organisations to support the research and delivery of the work.
