While walking to the suburb of "The Rocks" during my visit to Sydney in February, I came across this gigantic mural on the side of a building in George Street.
The 6 x 10 metre mural was commissioned by American Express, Deliveroo and Two Good Co. who have partnered to donate 20,000 meals to women in domestic violence shelters.
Launched in October 2017 during the "Love shouldn't hurt" campaign, the artwork was created by the artist, Noula Diamantopoulos and the face of the project is former domestic abuse victim and advocate Felicity Cook, and it was made using 20 thousand jar lids supplied by Two Good Co., a meal delivery service that provides chef-designed meals in a jar to offices.
I'm glad I managed to see this mural as the building is earmarked to be demolished sometime this year to give way to the Circular Quay Tower. Hopefully this panel can be moved and displayed somewhere else so that conversations around domestic violence carry on.
You can see how the mural was created in this video:
