About this event

HELP SUPPORT VICTIMS ND SURVIVORS OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE

Often victims and survivors of sexual and domestic violence attempt to hide their experience in the shadows. We want people to know that they are not alone, that we believe them and that they do not have to hide their trauma. Shadows Ignited is a combination of music, poetry, dance, monologues and dramatic performances aimed at giving victims and survivors of sexual violence a creative outlet to share their stories in ways they are comfortable. The poems, monologues and theater pieces have all been written by clients of Silent NO Longer Tennessee. Proceeds from ticket sales go to providing creative expression programs such as poetry, drama, painting and other artistic ways.

SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS: Southminster Presbyterian Church and United Nations Association - Nashville Cordell Hull

Organizer of Shadows Ignited

MISSION: To empower sexual assault survivors though the establishment of safe environments for support, advocacy and creative expression.
Advocacy: Using a multidisciplinary approach, we work to address the root causes of sexual violence by dismantling stereotypes and eroding cultural attitudes and practices that perpetuates the culture of sexual violence through the use of awareness campaigns, educational resources and collaboration, as well as utilizing the legislative process to ensure the criminal justice system, medical community and advocacy groups have the tools and funding required to provide appropriate compassionate care, to properly investigate and prosecute sexual violence crimes, and to support survivors and their families with the mental health, addiction and other supportive services needed.
Empowerment: By providing space, training and resources, we work to provide survivors the tools and opportunities to find their voice, speak their truth and support other survivors through activism and creativity.
