About Reclaiming Ourselves: Reclaiming Ourselves is a multi-media artists' showcase created by survivors of domestic and sexual abuse in order to provide an opportunity for fellow survivors to share and exchange their experiences through artistic expression. Featuring paintings, music, photography, short stories, and more, Reclaiming Ourselves serves as the spark to an open conversation of not only how to address the problem of domestic and sexual violence in our community, but how to care for its victims.
A cornerstone of Reclaiming Ourselves' mission is to create awareness of this issue and its victims, as well as to help generate resources for the local organizations that care for them.
This year's showcase will be to benefit the Domestic Violence Program, a shelter and crisis center in Murfreesboro, Tennessee devoted to preventing violence, and protecting and empowering its victims. We will be accepting donations directly to this organization, and also selling artwork and keepsakes from the showcase, the proceeds of which will go to benefit the Domestic Violence Program as well.
