The Art of CHANGE

C.H.A.N.G.E. (Challenging Harmful Assault Narratives through Group Expression) is an art exhibit that gives survivors and supporters a space to share their creative work concerning stigmas of sexual assault. Submissions are currently open for our Fall 2022 Exhibit!

What Were You Wearing

This exhibit asks observers to evaluate what enabled us as individuals or as a society to ever question, "What were you wearing?" to survivors of sexual assault. This art installation displays replications of outfits from stories of student survivors alongside a message from the survivor.
