The Monument Quilt: Quilt Making Workshop
Add Your Voice to this National Project for Survivors
Tuesday, April 17, 2018 · 4:30 PM - 5:45 PM
The Women's Center will be hosting a quilt making workshop from 4:30-5:45pm in the Women's Center. Survivors and secondary survivors are invited to attend this workshop to make a quilt square that will be contributed to the Monument Quilt.
All supplies will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The Monument Quilt is an on-going collection of stories from survivors of rape and abuse. Written, stitched, and painted onto red fabric, stories of survivors will be displayed on Erickson Lawn at UMBC to to create and demand public space to heal. The quilt resists the popular and narrow narrative of how sexual violence occurs by telling many stories, not one. The quilt builds a new culture where survivors are publicly supported, rather than publicly shamed.
