Summary:

Over the past two years, Art Access has partnered with art therapist Jill Johnson (MAAT) and organizations such as the YWCA of Utah, Hill Air Force Base, the National Ability Center, and others to serve survivors of sexual abuse in Utah.

In April 2018 Art Access will present the exhibit Resilience and Power: Art by Survivors of Sexual Abuse featuring art and writing from Art Access program participants and the broader artist community of Utah. With this exhibit Art Access will offer survivors an opportunity to share their stories in order to create deeper community understanding around sexual violence.
