The event is a collaboration between: The Office of Sexual Violence Support and Education, CAW-Sam Gindin Chair in Social Justice and Democracy, The Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and the Sexual Assault Roadshow.

Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is a pop-up participatory art gallery in a shipping container. The retrofitted, glass fronted container will travel on a flatbed truck to 15 cities/areas in Ontario over a three year period. At each stop, local artists will work with anti-violence experts and community participants to create, curate and exhibit art that “talks back” to sexual assault. Recently, there has been unprecedented dialogue and awareness about the crime and sexual violence generally. Sexual Assault: The Roadshow will serve as work and exhibition space for multiple art forms that will further that dialogue in creative, community based and transformative ways. We are a project by sexual assault activist Jane Doe and artist/activist Lillian Allen. It is funded by the Ontario Arts Council and sponsored by VTape | The source for video and new media.
