JARRING: Artist’s Books to Promote Sexual Assault Awareness
In 2011, I embarked on a project called JARRING—a set of 3 artist’s books in an edition of 50 that share the real-life, anonymously submitted narratives of survivors of sexual assault and rape with the goal of raising funds for crisis centers and creating a publicly accessible archive. I have recently launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for the project, with the goal of donating any funds which I receive in excess of the project’s requirements to rape crisis centers. I recently completed a letterpress studio arts residency at Women’s Studio Workshop where I printed the first of the three books in the set. Funding is still needed to complete the last two books. I hope you will have a look at the project and consider making a contribution!
UPDATE: The goal amount for this project has been reached! Any funds received from here on out will go towards donations for Rape Crisis Centers. Please consider making a donation or passing the word along!
