About

 

The Awakening was created as a platform to promote awareness and healing for the community, to overcome the many forms of violence against women. In Hawai'i and around the world, women are looking to strengthen and cultivate pathways for resilience. Through the end of the year, where initiatives for awareness about violence against women are addressed, The Awakening Exhibit hopes to share resources, connectivity and support.

To the survivors and surviving, you are not alone. To those who are supporting family and friends, you are not alone. Community support has been effective and vital for recovery. Globally, more communities recognize the disproportionate violence against women which looks to provide resources for change.  This exhibit and other related movements have been created to bring empowerment despite political and social hurdles. We hope to support in all ways possible. We are providing programs and resources to help, but if you would like to share support, resources, art, poetry, letters, articles, video, stories etc, please feel free to email theawakeningexhibit@gmail.com for the duration of the exhibit.

 

Please join us for the opening of the physical exhibit at Fishcake in Honolulu, Hawaii.
