Awakenings is a certified 501-c-3 dedicated to making visible the artistic expression of survivors of sexual violence. We have a small gallery space in Ravenswood with the only known collection of survivor art. We hold a wide variety of year round programming, ranging from exhibit openings, to concerts, to monthly art making nights. We partner with rape crisis centers, counsellors, art therapists, local activists, and like-minded nonprofits. We are growing rapidly and want to spread the word, expand our community, and widen the resources we are able to offer survivors.
Goals and Objectives:
An ideal intern for Awakenings will be passionate about our mission, a self-starter, and able to see projects all the way through. The Literary intern will primarily work in the two following areas
