"Swept Under the Rug" Exhibition

The Swept Under the Rug exhibition aims to shed light on the widespread impact of sexual violence on survivors in our local community and will create space for conversations. The exhibit is divided into three installations – "What Were You Wearing" features clothing that is representative of outfits survivors were wearing when they were assaulted; "Touched" addresses the aftermath of these attacks through illustration on mannequins of embodied memories of non-consensual contact; "When a Child Speaks" shares the experiences of young survivors.

This exhibition is curated by staff members at Safe Passage with artistic content developed and created by sexual assault survivors of all ages.


The gallery is only accessible through advanced ticketing available through Eventbrite.
