The Kinstugi Project
Finding beauty and strength in coming together
Throughout history, we have been connected by art. From the beginning of our times to present day, we are beings of self-expression. Today, we introduce a new spin on a classic style, welcome to the Kinstugi Project.
Just as art has been integral to our existence, so have sex and violence. While the majority if us agree that ending sexual violence is a beautiful thing, it can often be too painful to look at. Through the Kintsugi Project, we aim to change this perception by showing the strength and beauty in coming together and healing.
Our objectives are to:
- Provide a platform for survivors and allies to speak about sexual assault openly, without shame, guilt, or suffering.
- Engage all of society in the dialogue about our culture and the continued prevalence of sexual violence.
- Encourage reconnection, between survivors, their bodies, allies, and society.
- Acknowledge the beauty and strength in a community working together to recover from and break the cycles of sexual violence.
