the many faces of me

Crime in Aboriginal communities is often talked about… by everyone else, but rarely do the survivors get a voice in how it effects them.  We wanted to  take this issue into the community and see what their opinions were, and how being a survivor really affected them.

The aim of this project was to explore the feelings experienced by victims of crime, by creating a series of masks and a digital story which depict our experiences of survival and resilience.

 

The masks depict our abilities to survive the challenges of our experiences and model examples of resilience through creating

our art. 

This project was a unique opportunity to hear their stories and experiences and well as develop some ideas for change and healing from 12 Aboriginal women, who shared very deep and personal stories about their survival from acts of crime.
