Ottawa Launch and Media Conference: August 3rd at 11am
Everyone is invited!
You know how art has the power to change things? Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is a participatory art gallery in a shipping container. It's travelling to 15 cities in Ontario over a three year period and Ottawa is it's 9th stop. At each stop, local women's agencies (that's us!) will work with local artists and community participants (that's you!) to create art that talks back to sexual violence. SASC Ottawa will be hosting several public exhibitions (beginning at the August 3rd launch) with opportunities for visitors to create your own art — and several workshops. We are working with the Babely Shades Collective (https://facebook.com/babelyshades/) to make it all happen.
Sexual Assault: The Roadshow (sexualassaultroadshow.org) is a project by sexual assault activist Jane Doe and artist/activist Lillian Allen. It's funded by the Ontario Arts Council, and is an initiative of the Premier's Action Plan to Stop Sexual Violence. Vtape is the project sponsor.
Thank you, once again, to AEFO and Vanier BIA for letting the Sexual Assault: The Roadshow use the space.
