Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is Coming to Peterborough in Honour of May’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month

posted in: Upcoming Tour Stops | 0

The Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre and participating artists welcome Sexual Assault: The Roadshow to Peterborough for May’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month. 

 KSAC and Artists Statement:

“Facing Faceless” is a project about sexual violence and harassment prevention that addresses a culture normalizing sexual violence and degrading women. 

A core group of four local and professional artists, will collectively examine the objectification of women, the invisibility of survivors of sexual violence, and the national silence around the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women. As a community, we have become entrenched in the digital world and disconnected from face-to-face communication which is deteriorating empathy. Artist/Playwright and Aboriginal cultural curator Anne Taylor, will join Micky Renders, social activist, teacher and artist, as well as Barb Hawthorn, artist, and Shelley King, artist and puppeteer in exploring this theme. They will confront how we face facelessness as witnesses, survivors and bystanders, by revealing our inner wisdom, by reclaiming our power and identity, and by looking towards art, culture and ancestors to find resiliency, strength and voice. 

Through “Facing Faceless,’ we will build community-wide conversations, informed by Indigenous cultural competency, to address the issues of sexual violence perpetrated against 100% of local indigenous women and girls (according to a 2015 needs assessment), and young women ages 15 to 24 through online and dating violence. Working with a variety of media, these artists will connect with community through workshops at PCVS and weekly exhibition in the Sexual Assault Road Show to promote May 2017’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
