Using Art to Shine a Light on Coercive Control

Art and artists have long played a role in bringing about social change. In recent years, some incredible artists have focused their efforts on the work of bringing awareness and recognition to the problem of coercive control and giving a voice to its victims. We wanted to share one ad campaign that uses the power of visual art to do just that.

Cut Your Strings is a UK ad campaign created to highlight various tactics of coercive control that are now criminal offenses, including tracking and monitoring, isolation, and threats. The three pieces are unique and do an incredible job of showing the impact of coercive control on a victim.
