"What Were You Wearing?"
10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Saturday April 13th
Including a performance by
Poetic Justice Theatre Ensemble
from 2:30 - 4 p.m.
The Installation asks participants to understand that it was never about the clothing. The violation is not simply woven in to the fabric of the material, it is a part of the survivor's new narrative. If only ending sexual violence was as easy as changing our clothes. Instead it requires all of us to evaluate what enabled us as individuals and as a society to ask, “What were you wearing?” in the first place. The intent is to place the work of bearing witness to this question’s answer back on the shoulders of the community and humanize the
survivor in the answer. More . . .
We are inspired by the folks at the University of Kansas to create this exhibit in Port Townsend.
