Survivor Love Letter Workshop

Thursday, September 12, 2019 . 5:30PM

Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center.

What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life?
The world would split open. –Muriel Rukeyser, American poet, activist, and feminist

Survivor Love Letter is a movement for survivors of sexual assault and their allies to publicly celebrate their lives. Started by filmmaker and activist Tani Ikeda in 2012 on the anniversary of her rape, #SurvivorLoveLetter has rippled out to become a hashtag, a letter writing campaign, and a viral social movement. In this workshop, facilitated by Tani, you will have an opportunity to tell your story in the form of a poem, a personal monologue, a letter to yourself, a song, or whatever comes to mind. This workshop is being presented in connection with “A body, home,” which is a multimedia, intergenerational dance piece on sexual violence performed in the back of a moving truck. Performances of the dance will be part of NextNOW Fest on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 13 and 14, and will incorporate excerpts of letters written during this workshop.

Free, no tickets required for most activities. Click here for more information.
