The Apron Project was created by Australian Sallianne McClelland who has 30 Years in Event Management - Corporate, Association, Mixed Media Art Retreats & Philanthropic endeavors.  

Artists from across Australia and overseas unite to create works of art on aprons to support organisations serving women in crisis.  

In the last two years over 80 artists have presented more than 100 aprons and raised almost AUD20,000 for the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women's Shelter.  Importantly they also raised awareness of the growing epidemic of Domestic Violence.  

There have been 173 deaths by domestic violence since we started this project.

The Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women's Shelter services women in crisis in the community and is currently also working with the State and Federal governments to better the living opportunities once women leave the shelter and attempt to restart their life. 

Sallianne McClelland is the President of the Board for the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women's Shelter and can be reached at +61 408 670 207 /
