From Monday, August 30, 2021 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM EDT at Online.
Organized and sponsored by the Women’s Center, Survivor Advocacy Program, Health Promotion, Ohio University Art Galleries, Ohio University Alumni Association, Department of Geography, and with support from Counseling and Psychological Services.
In This Space: Disrupted focuses on geographies of space and violence. Like many rape myths, the process of associating certain locations (or people) with violence can otherize victims and survivors whose experiences do not match with the public narrative. Both Hollaback! and harassmap have focused on naming public locations in which harassment occurs, and our hope is that this exhibit will call into question the public and private locations of trauma. We hope it instills awareness in viewers and is a call to action that challenges static narratives so that survivors may be supported in all spaces.
From Wednesday, September 8, 2021 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM EDT at Trisolini Gallery.
