Description:

- “Hearing the Whispers and Roars” tells the stories of domestic violence survivors through the arts when Crisis Center North and North Hills Art Center sponsors the second community art event, October 13-29, as a part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Live performances and art experiences will be featured at the opening along with opportunities to meet the artists in attendance. The interactive art exhibit “Following the Purple Brick Road” will also allow community members to contribute their feelings and experiences during the opening night by decorating pairs of shoes to symbolize the steps on a victim’s path to survivor.

“Domestic violence is all around us in the North Hills,” said Kim Freithaler, president of the North Hills Art Center board of directors. “The show highlights the problems we face and brings them into the open.”

“Whispers and Roars serves as a platform for survivors, as well as community members, to collaborate through creativity. Some share their process through a quiet whisper, while others roar in the face of experienced injustices,” said Brooke Kaminski, CCN’s adult counselor. “Either way, the show is a fantastic way to honor the victims and extend gratitude to the collaborative community response.”

“Whispers and Roars” debuted as part of Crisis Center North’s 2015 Domestic Violence Awareness Month activities and is now in its third year of production.
