The mission of the Awakenings Foundation is to Make Visible the artistic expression of survivors of sexual violence.

The Awakenings Foundation is home to a multi-media art gallery featuring the artistic expressions of rape and sexual abuse survivors. By showcasing stories of survival, we are helping survivors find peace while simultaneously challenging the cultural taboos that prevent an honest discussion of sexual violence.

We shine a light on the truth. We don’t mince words. We are upfront and dead center about the prevalence of rape and sexual abuse in our culture. We are not here to make you comfortable. We are here to tell the truth and share the stories of the survivors brave enough to tell them.
