The Zonta Club of Veszprem Area held a benefit concert and art installation to promote the Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign.

To kick off the 16 Days of Activism campaign, the Hungary club welcomed local artist Kitti Tarcsa to share her work that focuses on examining violence against women.

Tarcsa was inspired by the Zonta Club of Veszprem Area to choose violence against women as the theme for her university thesis. Her work strives to describe violence against women by using three different faces that symbolize emotional abuse, sexual violence, and domestic violence.

Her work describes the violence against women symbolically by using a stencil technical on Plexiglas, lighting her work from behind. She also placed a reflective surface behind each piece so people viewing the art could see themselves in her work.

Tarcsa is a 24-year-old ceramic artist and interior designer and studied interior design at the University of Nyíregyháza in Hungary from 2013 to 2016.

In 2016 she won a school competition for her work in graphic design to raise awareness for violence against women and in 2017 she took part in the Hungarian national competition to symbolize violence against women.
