Mission Statement

Awakenings makes visible the artistic expression of survivors of sexual violence.

Description

The Awakenings Foundation is a certified 501-c3 dedicated to making visible the artistic expression of survivors of sexual violence. We have a small gallery space in Ravenswood with the only known collection of survivor art. We hold a wide variety of year round programming that includes rotating art exhibits, monthly art making nights, musical concerts, dance and theater performances, poetry readings and open mic nights, live painting events, and much more. We also publish an online literary magazine twice a year, and hold writing workshops to help survivors heal through literary arts. We partner with rape crisis centers, counselors, art therapists, local activists, and like-minded nonprofits to collaborate on events and share our audiences. We are growing rapidly and want to spread the word, expand our community, and widen the resources we are able to offer survivors.
