In April 2016 and 2017, Art Against Assault swept the country for Sexual Assault Awareness Month visiting college campuses, universities, and local survivor organizations to discuss the importance of addressing sexual assault and domestic violence trauma through art.
We’ve made stops at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Maryland Institute College of the Art, Mills College, Rhode Island School of Design, Syracuse University and more while raising thousands of dollars for sexual assault and domestic violence crisis survivor services. We met face-to-face with student survivors, Title IX administrators, supportive faculty and staff, as well as representatives of rape crisis centers and other sexual assault survivor organizations to discuss how art can serve as a resource for healing while also raising the volume on sexual assault awareness.
For #SAAM2018 and for the remaining 2017 school year, we hope to visit even more campuses along our tour and find new student work to highlight in our gallery and upcoming sponsored programming!
Bring Art Against Assault to Your Campus
If you are interested in having us visit your college campus or organization, please get in touch. Throughout the year and with a focus on April’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month and October’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we are available for guest lecture and visiting artist appointments. Students will learn what resources are available for survivors in their area, how to be a good bystander, and how art can serve as a tool for speaking out against sexual assault while healing trauma.
Thank you to the following organizations we’ve worked with over the years who have supported us in our mission as we have supported them in theirs to raise awareness about sexual assault and domestic violence through art:
