The project background

The background of this project stems from our own experiences with domestic violence. Recognizing the need to assist others in vulnerable situations, we - Stina Willquist, author and songwriter, and Danne Falck, songwriter, and producer - decided to use our talents to contribute to a world of compassion and the solidarity.

The objectives of the project are:
-Create music to make individuals in or having experienced dysfunctional
relationships feel less isolated.
-Provide knowledge about domestic violence and foster a sense of community
through various events.
-Establish a platform where people can share their experiences.

We collaborate with:
Nationellt centrum för kvinnofrid
Kvinnojouren i Lund
Lunds kommun
