2019 Art Against Assault Tour
We’re thrilled to kickoff our 2019 tour with a focus on technology, creativity and safety. This year for Sexual Assault Awareness, Stalker Awareness Month, and Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we’ll be visiting campuses across the country to speak to students about how technology influences their lives when it comes to gender violence. Together, students will complete a wearable robotics project that makes visible their feelings of safety and security in public and private space. No previous experience with electronics or fashion design is necessary. We’ll also be presenting a second workshop on performance art and social justice. See our Projects page for more info.!
About the Art Against Assault Tour
For three years now, Art Against Assault has visited 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. We’ve raised thousands of dollars for sexual assault and domestic violence crisis survivor services. We’ve 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 #SAAM2019, 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 lectures, workshops, pop up exhibitions, and visiting artist appointments. Students will learn what resources are available for survivors in their area, how to be supportive of survivors, 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:
