The 2022 Sexual Assault Awareness Week Planning Committee is proud to present the “Expressions of Empowerment” Art Exhibit. Art is a very power tool of social critique and resistance against injustice within our society. This virtual gallery of worlds provides a platform for members of the Carleton community to use art to share stories, messages, and interpretations that reflect themes of violence, gender, consent, and healing. Artists, of whom consist of survivors and their allies, have curated original works of art that express what these themes mean to them. We thank each artist for their beautiful and brave contributions to this exhibit in an effort to raise awareness about sexual and gender-based violence, and we hope each viewer leaves their exhibit enlightened and empowered.
Thank you to our partners: CUSA, the Womxn’s Centre, Equity and Inclusion Services, and the Sexual Assault Support Centre for making this event possible.
