What is Love?

United Kingdom > Wolverhampton > The Mander Centre, Wolverhampton, UK > 2014-02-14 > 12:00 pm

About The Event

No one should live in fear of the person they love - but a quarter of all in the UK women experience domestic abuse, in fact, even though less than half of all incidents are reported to the police, they still receive one domestic abuse call every minute. At our event we'll be encouraging members of the public to write responses to the question 'What is love?' on hearts, which we will hang together on a line. We'll be talking about what love is, and what love is not. Come along and meet us on Friday 14th February, we'll be at The Mander Centre in Wolverhampton from 12-3pm – we would LOVE to hear people’s thoughts.
