From Rachel Verner ’15:
The Founder and director of Project Unbreakable are coming to Wes! Project Unbreakable is a photo project started by photographer and founder, Grace Brown, and director, Kaelyn Siversky. Their goal was to share the stories of survivors of sexual violence, and to raise awareness about consent and rape culture while helping survivors heal through art. Grace and Kaelyn will be talking about their experiences with the project, and they will also be discussing the importance of consent education.
There is also an opportunity to participate — be photographed for Project Unbreakable! Survivors being photographed hold a card stating something that was said to them during or after the assault – this ranges from things said by a friend or family member, their attacker, a member of their school’s administration, or any other source harmful (or helpful!) words.
All those photographed have the choice to remain anonymous, and the location and timing will be disclosed privately to those individuals who wish to be involved.
If you are interested in taking part in the project, email SART Intern, Rachel Verner (rverner[at]wesleyan[dot]edu), referencing “Project Unbreakable” in the subject line.
