• Add your voice to the photo mosaic

    What is your story of solidarity or resilience?

    The Speak Your Truth Initiative is a participatory social arts initiative that provides a creative voice for all those who want to speak out against gender-based violence. By filling in our photo mosaic with pictures and words of solidarity, we will create a work of art together that can be shared worldwide and that is a testament to resilience and a demand for justice.

Prompts to help share your story

Support

What does it feel like to be believed?

Empathy

What would you say to a survivor you may never meet, but who needs your wisdom?

Courage

What does your resilience look like?

Action

If you could do anything to end gender-based violence, what would it be?

What would the world be like without gender- based violence?

What is your story of solidarity or resilience?

These questions are asked in the context of providing both a voice for a survivor and a gift of wisdom for anyone. When asked to share your voice in this way, it amplifies strength not victimization.



Watch as our mosaic fills in! Like a puzzle, every shared piece of content will make up and fill in our large central image, underscoring that a single voice contributes to the whole.

Our year long, online exhibition will be archived and culminate with a live event exhibiting YOUR postcards, photographs and stories of resilience.

Together, we will ignite the global community with stories of resilience in the face of gender-based violence and provide a tool for positive change.
