Warrnambool landmarks have been emblazoned with messages of support to keep people talking during a global campaign focused on gendered violence.

The Lighthouse Theatre, Warrnambool Art Gallery and Aquazone have all got signs on display bearing messages supporting 16 days of activism, led by the United Nations.

Lighthouse Theatre manager Mik Frawley said it was valuable for community organisations to be part of the conversation.

“Any platform that can be used to further some good dialogue around issues to do with inequity, respect, or those sort of things is valuable,” he said.

“I’m pleased that the theatre is able to be supportive of and part of that dialogue.”

The period of activism started on November 25, the International Day for Elimination of Violence Against Women, and will finish on December 10, Human Rights Day.
