Firing Silence; Moulding Change

Thu April 21 to 25, 2016, All Day

Radius Child and Youth Services SAFE-T Program and the Gardiner Museum invite you to witness the courageous work completed by children and youth breaking the silence of their experiences of sexual abuse by transforming their narratives into clay sculptures.

When thinking of the circle of life and how communities support the mechanism behind moving forward from sexual abuse, one 16-year-old participant had this to say:

“Treat life like a Ferris wheel…You must get past the fear to enjoy the ride.”
