Working with advocates from partnering agencies, artists have collaborated with individuals who have experienced violence and created original works of visual art reflective of their stories, often untold.
Through the exhibition of works in Witness, visual art is a tool to facilitate healing for survivors, build relationships between artists and survivors, and engage the community in a very powerful way to help end violence against women and girls.
Witness is developed and produced by LAL in partnership with Kentucky Domestic Violence Association, Bluegrass Domestic Violence Program, Bluegrass Rape Crisis Center, Kentucky United Methodist Homes for Children and Youth, and Third Street Stuff. Sponsored by The University of Kentucky Center for Research on Violence Against Women.
Witness 2011 focused on providing an outlet for expression for military survivors of abuse and was produced in partnership with Veterans Affairs Department. Click here to view our 2010 Witness video and view work from the 2011 exhibition, currently on tour, in the slideshow on the right.
