Survivor Nest Project Panel Discussion

April 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Debbie Baxter, photographer, Lisa Kawski, sound healer, Donna Jenson, writer, Katie Bourgeois, filmmaker, and Carla Beatrice, community art organizer, discuss the many ways the arts can be used for healing. The panel discussion will take place on the first floor of Old Town Hall in Salem. It is offered through CultureHouse Salem, a pop-up community space offering programming from April – June. Before or after the panel, view the Survivor Nest Project exhibition on both floors of Old Town Hall.

The Survivor Nest Project is a transformational healing arts project for survivors of incest and childhood sexual abuse. Organized by Carla Beatrice of Survivor Nest, an interactive exhibit and programming is taking place in April during Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Month and Sexual Assault Awareness Month. A powerful installation by artist Debbie Baxter of The Nest Project includes a giant life sized nest, nesting portraits of survivors and narratives of the healing they brought into their nesting experiences. Join us in this incredible historic site, once used for public meetings and gatherings, as Baxter transforms it into a safe, nurturing and intimate womb-like environment.

This is a free event. Program donations are welcome and are very much appreciated. It takes a community to build a nest and every stick counts!
