Description: 

A special NYC performance of Secret Survivors, a play in a series by the arts organization Ping Chong and Company that draws on interviews, writings, and conversations with survivors of child sexual abuse. The performers -- themselves survivors -- tell their powerful stories of abuse, touching on issues of societal taboo, fear, and silence. Both personally cathartic and socially aware, the play "seeks to use direct personal narrative to show that this violence is epidemic, to represent the diverse ways it occurs, and grapple with the many reasons that most survivors remain silent," says Chong.

Silence -- as evidenced by the fact that only 10 percent of cases are reported -- is one of the key barriers to child sexual abuse prevention. That is why the Ms. Foundation for Women is committed to elevating the voices of survivors whose stories break through the silence that perpetuates abuse and challenge the myths that inform public understanding, policies and programs. Community-based approaches that encourage healing and honest dialogue -- like Ping Chong's innovative play -- are the first step towards building a new movement to end child sexual abuse.

Description: 

This year's Harry Frank Guggenheim symposium at John Jay College focuses on America's courts and their increasingly critical role in advancing or standing in the way of criminal justice change. At both the federal and state levels, they are at the center of new, transformative approaches to public safety and justice delivery systems. At the same time, they are often the source of huge inefficiencies, backlogs and even corruption which (ironically) prevent the successful realization of such change. Symposium panels and speakers will also focus on other issues likely to dominate the conversation and policy debates (and coverage) of criminal justice in 2011 led by the continuing budget crisis that continues to affect local and state spending on public safety and corrections. Can we do more with less?

Description: 
  • Song of the Sea is two shows: SIRENS and The Girl from Bare Cove, both created out of an impulse to give voice to sexual violence survivors and to encourage community healing and public awareness.

 

  • Conceived, composed, and directed by survivors Jillie Mae Eddy and Maridee Slater,Song of the Sea is not autobiographical or a retelling of real-life events, but rather a way for these women to transform their experiences into something constructive, something beautiful, something they hope will inspire other survivors to transform their experiences into works of art.

 

  • We aim to initiate a folk art movement that will inspire and encourage survivors, their loved ones, and anyone intimately affected by these acts to transform their experiences into works of art. We believe that our shared histories have just as much power to bring us together as they do to keep us apart--and that's exactly what we're going to do with this show. 

 

  • SIRENS - A sideshow symphony with sounds inspired by the Vaudeville stage, sea shanties, Barnum and Bailey, and burlesque clubs, SIRENS is a dream. A nightmare. An exhibition of biological rarities and mundane regularities, asking: What makes us human?

 

  • The Girl From Bare Cove - follows a family in crisis as they face the near-loss of one of their own. With songs inspired by the folk sounds of New England and a story rooted in the ghostly traditions and fairy tales of that place, this modern-day fable invites us to explore the communities we share and the worlds we build for ourselves.

SPARK stands for Sexualization Protest: Action, Rebellion, Knowledge
The SPARK summit is an exciting day-long event with the purpose of igniting a movement for girls' rights. Participants will have the opportunity to speak out, push back on the sexualization of girls, learn, and have fun with one another!

The SPARK Summit will bring together girls and media professionals, thought leaders and funders, researchers and activists – and will serve as a national call to action and campaign for change. As a first step towards building a broader coalition, a convening was held in May, thanks to generous funding from the NoVo Foundation. Participants included the Ford Foundation, Girls Inc, the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, and the APA, which will be a part of the summit’s policy/research committee.
