About this Event

13 years ago, Jungle Flower narrowly escaped a psychologically abusive relationship. After seeing how many of her friends could relate to her experiences, she founded Reclaim Your Voice to offer a platform for people to tell their stories about abuse and sexual violence. This year she embarked on a nine month solo journey through Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand to write and release her own stories. JUNGLE FLOWER DRAGON HEART is a collection of travel stories, spoken word poetry and visuals which tell the story of her journey of experiencing and healing from abuse.
