Community Consent Project Make Art Join The Discussion says
You may have seen posters around Seattle inviting you to expose and deconstruct rape culture through art. We now invite you all to help us in our next project, which will be bigger, softer and more involving of you as we'll need many hands, hearts and minds to pull it off!

If you are committed to combating rape culture, (and if you want to), come make art with us from your own experiences, both traumatic/painful and consensual/empowering (or from whatever fucking place your at right now cuz we aren't judging).

The event will be held at V2, the local community art space that recently took over the Value Village Warehouse, where we will feature written and spoken art pieces and have materials for creating a new community art project.

This particular project is a mix of inspirations from a long tradiation of feminist art:

We are excited to reveal our project to you!

Rape effects everyone, yet it is an issue most often suffered in silence and solitude. The #ExposeRape campaign seeks to bring it to the surface of public dialogue in order to organize against it. This event is intended as an inclusive space, all lived experiences / identities are welcomed and honored.
