To mark Sexual Assault Prevention Month, TAIS is launching 20 commissioned gifs by Toronto artist Carolyn Tripp. This series addresses the need to support survivors of sexual violence, dispel myths about sexual assault and harassment, and underlines the importance of consent in building a safe, fair and respectful society.
Created by artist Carolyn Tripp, arising from discussion with Jenni-Leigh O’Neill– a student, survivor, and human rights advocate from Kingston, and following preliminary consultation with Jenna MacKay–a community worker, researcher, writer, and survivor from Toronto; and Jenn Snider–an artist, curator, and cultural worker/TAIS Managing Director, the resulting series speaks to the importance of ongoing efforts to challenge common myths about sexual assault and harassment.
