How to Listen to Survivors Stories with FORCE and Gather Together
Why is art important to ending rape culture? What role should survivors own stories have in upsetting rape culture? After a discussion and training about how to listen to and witness survivor’s stories, members of Gather Together will perform their own stories in prose, poetry and performance to demonstrate the range of experiences that comprise our survivor narratives.
