Our Bodies, Our Minds is an embodied, active two-hour workshop hosted by Art with Impact which explores the mental health impacts that sexual violence can have on survivors and communities. Our Bodies, Our Minds aims to build more supportive communities by:
- Being FOR EVERYONE! We view sexual violence as a community issue – everyone knows at least one survivor of sexual violence;
- Using theater and embodied techniques that welcome all people to step into different roles, and build empathy for others;
- Exploring potential mental health impacts of sexual violence (including anxiety, PTSD, depression, eating disorders, self hatred, fear, insomnia, and others) and reducing stigma around symptoms of mental health issues;
- Learning how to support survivors – as friends, family, partners, and peers.
