Posted on Posted in #metoo, Advocacy, Awareness, Culture, News

Are you someone who cares about sexual violence prevention at ASU? Want to learn innovative and creative strategies for how to prevent and respond to sexual violence? Please join us for the launch of the CounterAct Initiative at the Convening on April 4!

This gathering will catalyze 880 creative actions to counter the 880 acts of sexual violence that happen in the United States every day.* Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to join us for any portion of the day. The convening will provide space for education, inspiration and partnership development as ASU addresses this cultural problem with cultural solutions.

Topics to be explored will include:

  • Trauma-responsive creative practice
  • Sexual violence prevention and response strategies at ASU
  • Cross-sector partnership building and matchmaking
  • Healthy relationships and consent
  • Art and design as a tool for cultural change

The Convening will launch a seed-grants program to support small-scale sexual violence prevention creative actions from $200 to $1,200. As a part of the convening, participants will collaboratively vision projects and curricular connections to propose to the seed grant program.

All disciplines encouraged to attend. No arts experience necessary. Please help us spread the word about this important initiative by forwarding this invitation to people and groups in your network at ASU.
