Our VOICE Promotes a Plethora of Community Events Begining Feb. 2nd
Kick Off Starts with Gigantic Red High Heels!
Those of you who read my first article submission to AshevilleNow.com or have been familiar with Our VOICE, the rape crisis center serving Buncombe County, know that they are no accepting original works of art from all people affected by sexual assault and rape. They will accept submissions until March 1st for their 10th Annual Survivors Art Show. What you may not know is that, beginning tomorrow Our VOICE will be inviting community members to partake in three more events held over the next few months.
Let's Talk Workshops help parents start conversations with their teens on critical topics. These workshops are FREE and open to all parents, no registration is required. The first workshop to be held, February 4, will look at Healthy Relationships and Dating Violence. They will be held at Randolph Learning Center, 90 Montford Ave., Asheville from 6-7:30pm. Snacks will be provided by supportive businesses around the Asheville area. Embrace your right and responsibility to be your teen's primary educator. Otherwise, the world will do it for you. Workshops include discussions on topics including Bullying, Violence Prevention and Internet Safety; Sexual Health, Body Image and Mass Media and Money Management. The the last workshop date is May 4th, Consent and Sexual Violence will be the topic discussed. If the Asheville City Schools are closed for bad weather, workshops will be rescheduled on back-up date.
Are You Man Enough to "Walk the Walk" and Take a Stand Against Sexual Violence? Our VOICE will be recruiting men to be in a promotional video which will be filmed February 2nd through 5th. Show the community that you support Our VOICE's efforts to prevent sexual violence and promote your business at the same time by simply slipping on a pair of high heels and taking a little stroll. They will provide the shoes, you provide the dance moves!
Finally Our VOICE in conjunction with Arts2People will hold "With Our Hands Art Workshops: Free Art Classes for All People Affected by Sexual Violence. Our VOICE would like to promote the idea of healthy coping methods for those affected by this subject. Workshops and dates are The Stitching Sacred Space, Fridays 2/19, 2/26, 3/5, and 3/12; Journey Within: Healing through Mandalas, Saturdays 2/13, 2/20, and 2/27; Reclaiming the Self: Creative Non-Fiction - Tell Your Own Story, Saturdays 3/6, 3/13, 3/20, and 3/27; and Clay Vessels and Masks: A Brief Intro to Wheel and Hand Built Pottery, Sundays 2/21, 2/28, and 3/7.
