What were you Wearing?
Survivor Art Installation

What Were You Wearing? is an art exhibit based on student-survivor descriptions of the clothes they were wearing during their sexual assault. The Oregon State University exhibit curators have interpreted and recreated these outfits based on these survivors' experiences. As you navigate the exhibit, you will be able to view their interpretations of the outfits and listen to voice actors read the survivors' accounts.  OREGON STATE

Through the Survivor's Lens

Developed by Ohio University, "Through the Survivors' Lens" features 52 photographs submitted by 20 survivors of childhood trauma, sexual assault, dating violence, stalking, harassment, and domestic violence to document their responses to prompts such as: What does survivorhood look like to you? What did the experience of trauma look like to you? How does your assault or trauma still affect you?  OHIO UNIVERSITY
