Newsletter, Fall 2011: Art for Violence Prevention

Opening text: “From our games to fabric art installations – all are creative expressions whose power has been harnessed to advance safety, justice and equity for women and youth affected by violence. The THRIVE Coalition’s Fabricating Change Project brought together artists, women and transpeople of diverse backgrounds and ages to create art and weave stories, foster creative expression and self-confidence, restore hope and renew the spirits of participants. This project demonstrates the power of interdisciplinary partnerships in violence prevention work and the application of art to build intergenerational bridges; break down isolation; enable participants to integrate their understanding of and
experiences with violence; and identify solutions for change.”
