Please join the University Art Gallery in the second discussions associated with the current exhibition entitled Off the Beaten Path: Violence, Women and Art that to explore the global ramifications of gender-based violence. “Throughout the world, women and girls are victims of countless and senseless acts of violence. The range of gender-based violence is devastating, occurring, quite literally, from womb to tomb,” explains Randy Jayne Rosenberg curator and executive director of Art Works For Change. “The stories that underlie these artworks return us imaginatively to the event of violation and allow it to affect us.”
This program examines violence committed towards women based on culturally held beliefs and how women from those cultures are changing their communities.
Kelli Moore, PhD Candidate, Communication will moderate the discussion with Farrah Douglas from 5 Women Who Care, Cima Rahmankhan, artist, Dep N. Tuany from Water for Sudan, Cindy Mathew from Amnesty International, Dilkhwaz Ahmed from License to Freedom
