Hiding Place is a 3-Day Overnight Small Group Retreat for Survivors of Sexual Crime. Participants can seek sponsorship or become sponsors for someone else. This workshop is unique in its presentation of the ministry of Art as a healing conduit. Experience the healing power of specially prepared works of poetry, dance, music, mime, drama and visual art. The workshop includes personal group and individual growth sessions infused with the arts and passages from our text book ("Ravaged Relentlessly: Biblical Help for Those Overcoming Sexual Crime"), help-directed discussions and friendship building activities.
Each day is filled with devotional time led by Ministers, activities, personal prayer ministry, Bible Study of the Healing and Delivering Power of God for Survivors and available Christian Counselors if requested.

The ESPAVO Project is a photographic and narrative project designed to increase personal healing and empowerment for trans* and gender non-conforming individuals and loved ones who have experienced sexual violence. The project's goal is to increase personal healing and empowerment for trans* and gender non-conforming survivors and loved ones, as well as offering strength and hope to the community. Participants work with a professional photographer FORGE has screened to develop a series of portraits aimed at showcasing the person's "survivorship." Participants will receive a frameable copy of their favorite portrait. Participants can also have a personal statement (we'll help you write it if you want) affixed to their portrait and/or have it included in an online and/or traveling FORGE Espavo Project gallery to inspire others. Photographs will be taken at specific trans conferences and events, and/or in cities where both those wanting to participate and FORGE photographers live or travel.Photographer Dan Mouer will join forces with FORGE staff in Bethesda, MD on November 15, 2013 (2:00pm - 9:00pm) and November 16, 2013 (10:00am - 3:00pm). You won't want to miss this amazing opportunity with an amazing, sensitive photographer.Each session is scheduled for 60 minutes. It begins by completing a photo release form that includes your contact information and how you would like your image used (or not used). The photographer -- Dan Mouer -- will talk with you for a few minutes about what you would like, determine any boundaries, and help you feel more comfortable before beginning to take photographs.
