Art, storytelling, and social change: The Voices and Faces Project’s writing workshop in New York City.

This May, Aperture Foundation, the Ackerman Institute for the Family, and The Voices and Faces Project are coming together to present an intersectional approach to art-making and storytelling as vehicles to address gender-based violence. The three part programming series includes photographer Renee Rowan's exhibition, Bodies of Wood; a panel discussion focused on questioning cultural narratives of gender-based violence; and The Voices and Faces Project's two-day "Stories We Tell" testimonial writing workshop.

During "The Stories We Tell," workshop participants read and discuss world-changing testimonial literature, while taking part in a series of innovative writing exercises. This is a workshop that is as purposeful as it is powerful—a way that those who have lived through or witnessed violence can use their voices to create change. Applications are required for the two-day writing workshop; accepted applicants are given full, two-day program scholarships.

What can history's great storytellers teach us about fighting for social justice? How are literary and arts programs transforming the gender-justice movement? What does it mean to "creatively resist"? In a 4/25 Chicago Public Radio interview, The Voices and Faces Project founder Anne K. Ream explores these questions, while talking about our "Stories We Tell" writing program and our recent collaboration with Stories On Stage and Chicago's Edge Theatre.

Translating what we know about human trafficking and sexual exploitation into a series of messages that resonate for the general public is what "Marketing a Movement," our newest Voices and Faces project advocacy training, is all about. This half-day presentation and moderated discussion begins with a case study focused on "The Ugly Truth" anti-trafficking campaign, which was recognized by the European Union as one of the most groundbreaking gender-justice campaigns running worldwide. Created with the support of NoVo Foundation, and in partnership with our trusted allies at Brew Advisors.
