Event description
A new art exhibit showcasing the power of survivors’ storytelling through art to instigate social and political change.

About this event

In partnership with KAN WIN, Embodying Justice showcases the power of survivors’ storytelling through art to instigate social and political change. Awakenings seeks to promote awareness of the ongoing activism of survivors of Japanese military sexual slavery, who were euphemistically called “comfort women,” before and during WWII. Through art, we seek to spark discussion about connections to contemporary sexual violence in relation to state violence. Inspired by the women using art as a living testimony, we envision creating a local movement in solidarity with global activism.

Embodying Justice opens June 19. RSVP to set up your in-person tour or receive an access code to view the virtual exhibit.

Organizer of Embodying Justice

Awakenings is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making visible the artistic expression of survivors of sexual violence.

We currently help survivors heal through art by providing year-round programming at our gallery space in the Ravenswood neighborhood of Chicago. Through showcasing survivor art, our programming provides a safe space and supportive community for survivors who wish to share their stories, and also educates the public about the reality of sexual assault through rotating art exhibits, a digital literary magazine, concerts, and other performances.
