Felicity was part of the #deliveringgood exhibition supported by Lendlease and in partnership with American Express, Two Good, Deliveroo and Arup. Felicity, a domestic violence survivor, was made using 20,000 Two Good Jar lids by local artist Noula Diamantopoulos.
It was far more than an exhibition.
It was a demonstration of love and support by the community towards domestic violence survivors.
Each lid represented one meal donated to Two Good to deliver to a domestic violence safe house or soup kitchen.
With the building to be demolished, Felicity has just come down.
The exhibition was such a success, Lendlease - the land co-owner, offered us the creative licence of about 90m of hoarding to ensure that the message of Felicity lives on. We intend to continue the story of Felicity and devote the hoardings to murals about Gender Equality.
What is Gender Equality?
"Gender equality, equality between men and women, entails the concept that all human beings, both men and women, are free to develop their personal abilities and make choices without the limitations set by stereotypes, rigid gender roles and prejudices. Gender equality means that the different behaviour, aspirations and needs of women and men are considered, valued and favoured equally. It does not mean that women and men have to become the same, but that their rights, responsibilities and opportunities will not depend on whether they are born male or female. Gender equity means fairness of treatment for women and men, according to their respective needs. This may include equal treatment or treatment that is different but which is considered equivalent in terms of rights, benefits, obligations and opportunities."

What does Gender Equality have to do with Two Good Co?
According to 'Our Watch' a national framework for the prevention of violence against women, the root cause of Domestic and Family violence is Gender Inequality. We love what we do, but we'd prefer that there was no longer a need for a woman to live in a safe house.
