The Women's Wisdom Initiative
We use the power of art to transform and heal trauma.
WWI provides survivors of gender-based oppression and their allies an opportunity through the healing arts to speak their truth, heal and personally connect their voices and wisdom to a global conversation of compassion, empowerment and gender equality.
Our programs are for everyone and are an additional tool for self empowerment, available to existing aid and violence prevention programs working with women around the world.
Thousands of unique, handmade art postcards containing words of compassion and solidarity are created & hand delivered around the world through this therapeutic arts workshop, bringing awareness and voice to women and girls whose lives have suffered from isolation, violence or repression.
The Speak Your Truth Initiative is a virtual, participatory social arts initiative that provides a creative platform for healing and a voice for all those who want to speak out against gender-based violence anywhere in the world. Visit the photo mosaic!
The Traveling Heart Initiative provides unique hospital bags for survivors of sexual assault and is a symbol of solidarity carried around the world. Hospital bags provide necessary clothing and information to survivors and each bag contains a handmade message of hope through a Traveling Postcard that is placed in every bag.
Resources and Information
Our resource library is a place to learn more about gender-based violence. Whether it is domestic violence and its effects on marginalized communities, forced marriage around the world, campus sexual assault or exploring the intersectionality of violence against women, we feature stories that can promote learning and change.
Visit Our Gallery
Our gallery is filled with pictures of postcards and images of workshops around the world. It is a wonderful place to explore messages of hope and empathy.
WWI believes deeply in the power of healing arts and courageous storytelling to unify individuals, often across continents. Our work is built on the premise that by channeling traumatic experience into creativity, survivors can begin to heal, build support, share resiliency and become leaders in ending gender-based violence.
We welcome all voices to be heard, including cis and trans women, gender-fluid and non-binary persons that are subject to gender-based violence.
