Grantees Survivor Theatre Project

Survivor Theatre Project brings survivors themselves into the center of the effort to break silence and end sexual violence through empowerment, creativity, and public performance. Performances are engaging, poignant, funny, and provocative, and open up dialogue within our communities to address the reality of how common sexual violence is, and what we can do to stop it.

We are guided by an anti-oppression framework to allow multiple, complex identities and experiences deserving of expression, exploration, recognition and healing, within the context of sexual violence. We define sexual violence to include child sexual abuse, incest, ritual abuse, sex trafficking, rape, molestation, sexual violence in institutions (such as prisons and the military), on the border and as a tactic of war.
