Does your work break silence?

As you will likely know by now, my work in the past was made to disrupt the status quo concerning the re-victimization of survivors of sexual assault. My work broke silence forced upon me by my school and my college community. During my senior show, I was empowered to own my own narrative in a public space. The content of my work established boundaries for the viewer to process and choose whether or not to acknowledge it.

Pivoting to my work in community arts today, I incorporate a common theme to my work by asking:

“Who is missing?”

“Where is the greatest need?”

In relation to this prompt, silence relates to those missing in community spaces. As a community arts administrator, my primary goals include accessibility to programming and diversifying our community body. I hope to continue growing professionally to make progress in this much needed work.
