Share Your Story

Friday, October 24th

5PM| Lighthouse Center for Healing | 5321 First Place, NE

Art and creative expression continues to be one of the most powerful forms of healing after

experiencing victimization. As such, NVRDC will host the Third Annual Share Your Story Event. Share

Your Story—facilitated on one selected evening, each October—operates as a juxtaposition of art

and testimony for survivors of crime. Oftentimes, in the acute stage a trauma, there is a process of

having to tell and re-tell the unfolding events of what happened. Afterwards, many survivors

become silent and develop a hesitancy to verbally process their experienced incident. Here words do

not have to be the primary medium; color, texture, and visual expression will express what words

cannot. The pieces created, by survivors at Share Your Story, will be part of a larger celebration—the

Annual NVRDC Fundraiser in November.

Victimization happens in isolation, but healing takes place with community—NVRDC aims to reach

out and rise up for all individuals impacted by crime. We hope that you will reach with us to share

your story. For more information on Share Your Story, please http://www.nvrdc.org.
