There is a violent culture growing in the Toronto art scene, in the forms of sexual assault and rape.

THIS SHIT HAPPENS. It cannot be justified.
This is going to be a night where we don't let them take our power. We tell our stories, call them out and big up the women in our lives with art, music and good vibes.

What spurred our desire to do something large for the community came from personal pain, as well as disappointment and hope for the arts community. A member of our collective is currently undergoing the due legal processes for her rape case and finds herself lost as she attempts to navigate the legal system alone, a 20 year old student with no financial support. She was offered a half hour free legal advice and put on a 10 month waiting list for a counselling session. The lack of resources and support for those who have experienced sexual violence is damaging and disheartening. It has made her want to give up. We keep fighting so those who come after can find support through our actions.

Every art show, every after party we attend, we find people tolerating and sympathizing with known assaulter's because they have a fair amount of soundcloud plays, or instagram followers. So many have reached out identifying that they have experienced violence and assault from people who are considered popping in the Toronto music and art scene. These predators are tolerated regardless of their accusations and in some cases their charges.

This show is about personal healing, awareness, calling out the predators/sympathizers in our art community, and healing together while raising funds for a severely under funded section. The arts community needs this.

START A RIPPLE TO MAKE A WAVE.

The Barbara Schlifer Clinic provides legal aid, counselling, and support to women of all kinds who have experienced violence.
All funds raised after costs to be donated:
