BREAKING THE SILENCE: #MMIWG #METOO

Breaking the Silence: #MMIWG #MeToo exhibit will provide the greater community and ALL artists of any background a safe space to explore, illustrate, and voice their story, their narrative, and their truth. Selected art will be on display at locations and dates TBA in Spring 2021.

NSU Center for Tribal Studies and the NSU Violence Prevention team will be calling ALL artists to submit artwork of any medium to be selected and displayed at the 2021 3rd Annual Breaking the Silence: #MMIWG #MeToo art exhibit.

This exhibit seeks to raise awareness and acknowledge the prevalence of sexual assault and violence. In recent years, the #MeToo movement has drawn national attention to the once silenced voices of survivors of sexual harassment and assault. Many within our Indigenous communities have also taken the opportunity to add to this conversation the number of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (#MMIWG). Even with the number of undocumented cases, Indigenous women and girls experience sexual assault, violence, and go missing at higher rates than any other ethnic group. Through this exhibit, we hope to draw attention to these issues and provide a safe space for artists to give voice to their story and #MMIWG and #MeToo movements.
