The Art Project titled "Step By Step, Day By Day" was created by women using the services of Women's Aid which involved decorating a shoe on a blank board with from the past experiences, current circumstances or hopes, dreams and aspirations for the future. 
 
The 16 decorated shoes themselves represent the 16 Days of Activation during the annual White Ribbon Campaign which runs between 25th November - International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women to 10th December
- International Human Rights Day and by wearing a white ribbon we make the
statement: 'never to commit, condone or stay silent about violence against women'.
