More Than This @Industry Lab

Sat, Jul 30 2016 7:00 pm - 11:55 pm

Come join a community of survivors dedicated to taking healing into their own hands. More Than This is an evening of solidarity, healing and creative expression. We are inviting you to be a part of a safe environment which, we hope, will spark an open conversation addressing the problem of domestic and sexual violence in our community, as well as support its survivors. This event will feature live music, poetry, prose, photography, art and other creative expressions of healing from trauma.

This evening is an opportunity for sexual assault survivors to share their expressions of pain, of healing, of hope. We aim to join in solidarity with one another and use our expressions of creativity to educate the community about the complexities of experiencing sexual violence. Our nation is currently experiencing a moment of collective awareness of the reality of what it means to be a survivor of sexual assault. Thanks to social media, millions of Americans have now read one survivor’s eloquent and heartbreaking story. However, many survivors never get the chance to share their experiences. The world we live in has unfortunately become desensitized to violence of all kinds, and too often survivors are ignored or silenced. We are your parents, your children, your friends and members of your community. We are the people you laugh and even cry with. We are survivors who have decided to actively empower ourselves and educate others, using creative expression as a means of change and healing.
