revolution: transformation opening night

Explore the rEVOLUTION: Transformation website here! Even if you are not able to attend the live opening event, we encourage all to check out the virtual exhibits!

 

 

Please join SAPAC's Survivor Empowerment and Ally support program for the opening night of the 16th annual art show rEVOLUTION: Transformation on Thursday, April 1st from 7-8:30 pm via Zoom. The event will include featured artists as well as a discussion of the project and a detailed description of how to navigate the virtual website.

The themes of our show, as always, are gender, sexism, sexual violence, empowerment, and healing. The topic of sexual violence can include sexual assault, intimate partner violence, sexual and gender-based harassment, and stalking. 

Healing is a process that works in different ways for different people. Creating and displaying art can prove very helpful as a way to promote healing. Artistic expression provides a medium to bring up and process emotions and experiences in a way that can be difficult to discuss otherwise. Now more than ever we hope to provide a platform and resource that brings people together in healing.

Our goal with this event is to create and engage in a supportive community space for survivors where UM student allies and survivors will build empathy and an understanding of sexual violence and healing through the unique creative expression of survivor experiences and perspectives. This event is open to all in the community; everyone is encouraged to share their stories and voices.

After registering you will receive the Zoom link for the event.
