The Wall of Silence is an exhibition of images, stories and poems from
adult survivors of abuse. It highlights the extent of child abuse and
Its impact on victims and adult survivors.
The wall invites us to connect to each experience;
To bear witness
To stand against abuse
& the silence around it.
The photos, words & art on display at the Wall of Silence Exhibition have immense power. They express:-
•the emotions of experiencing abuse and its aftermath
•the pain, losses and confusions
•the resistance and pride of surviving
Below are some of the comments made by visitors to the exhibition held at the Colsten Hall in Bristol in January 2016

The Wall of Silence was produced by The Southmead Project and is a unique exhibition that not only highlights child abuse, its impact and the suffering this causes, but also the sheer determination and doggedness of those affected in trying to overcome the aftermath of that abuse: self-harming, substance misuse and sadly, attempts – sometimes successful, to take one’s life.
Child abuse is regularly being highlighted in all media outlets and the government has set up an Inquiry into the matter. The exhibition is a very powerful way of ensuring the voice of the victims and survivors will be heard. Following the initial launch of the exhibition at Colston Hall Bristol early January, the exhibition moved on to City Hall London and this was another enormous success. The next event will be held at Avon and Somerset Police HQ North Somerset running from the 3rd to the 6th May 2016 with a further 4 venues in England and Wales already in the diary.
