PAST EVENT

Resilient and Resisting in collaboration with Hackney Museum.

We invited individuals to come and listen to stories of survival and agency, focusing on the theme of violence against women and girls.

These stories contain explicit content and mention domestic violence, sexual abuse, rape and gendered violence. All stories are produced in collaboration and ongoing consultation with interviewees. The readings focussed on first hand accounts which show how, through individual or group resilience, people have found ways to speak up, name experiences, organise and survive.

The stories presented are from longer pieces collected as part of Resilient and Resisting, an oral history and collaborative storytelling project. The event was supported by Hackney Council’s 16 days of action against gender based violence, part of the UN’s campaign to help eliminate violence against women and girls. 2019 campaign had the theme #HearMeToo, linking to movements which feature the voices of the voices of survivors and activists.

This event was Trans and Sex Worker inclusive.
This was a free event.
