Feb 17Project Unbreakable
Feb. 17 | 7pm | Grafton-Stovall Theatre
Project Unbreakable works to increase awareness of the issues surrounding sexual assault and encourage the act of healing through art. It was founded in October of 2011, by then 19 year old Grace Brown, a photography student living in New York City. A friend told Grace her story of sexual assault — and unable to comprehend the darkness that goes on in our society, Grace went to bed that night losing faith in humanity and counting the number of people she knew who were abused. The next morning, she woke up with the idea for Project Unbreakable.
Originally, Project Unbreakable was meant to stay small, simply a way to spread awareness but it has since evolved into a healing project for sexual assault survivors where they are photographed holding a poster with a quote from their attacker. Survivors also have the option of submitting a photo of themselves holding their own poster to be featured on the website. Since the project's conception, Project Unbreakable has included over 1500 photographs of survivors, from Grace's photography to submissions to other group's recreations of Project Unbreakable.
Currently, Grace Brown travels to colleges and universities around North America to discuss the importance of sexual assault awareness and to showcase the work of Project Unbreakable.
Mar 5Speaker: Jake Byczkowski
March 5 | 7pm | Wilson Hall Auditorium
Byczkowski (biz-cow-ski) is touring college campuses with his keynote address, "Solo Cup Culture: Minimizing the Risks of an Alcohol-Soaked Campus Climate." It's a conversation about alcohol filled with healthy humor and relatable stories.
Byczkowski asks, “Why do many college students continue to drink even after experiencing alcohol related harm?” He guides you through his personal journey to discovering his own drinking problem, and reveals how he created a solution specific to his own needs. Jake will mobilize you to create a communal movement against alcohol related harm. Through interactive discussions on topics like bystander intervention, to what “problem drinking” really means, Jake intends to utilize the intelligent minds on your college campuses to create a new culture, where responsible use of alcohol and safety are priorities.
Contact Lesley Eicher for more information.
