Survivor Theatre Project is a FREE theater arts experience for survivors of sexual violence.
“Survivor Theatre Project woke me up. Grateful is not a big enough word to describe how I feel.” - Survivor/Artist Hope Payson
DID YOU KNOW??
Did you know that Survivor Theatre Project was offered the Violence Transformed 2013 Outstanding Performing Artist Award? Or that our Touring Company performed for the National Advisory Council for Sexual Violence this year? Survivor Theatre Project is gaining significant attention and expanding our reach every day. We are creating new partnerships and responding to inquiries to provide professional development to existing organizations. By harnessing the power of the arts and storytelling, Survivor Theatre Project is working to combat the isolation, shame and silencing so often felt by survivors.

The ultimate goal of our work is to have impact on the greater community. Survivor Theatre moves people to question the institutionalized practices and silencing that allow abusers to get away with their violations. This work is monumental in transforming the violence in our society; it causes people to take action in their own lives, in their neighborhoods, and in their communities.
We need more dedicated supporters who will stick with us for multiple years!
We are interested in your feedback, ideas, and we also need your consistent financial support while we expand, spread our reach, and maximize our impact. Contribute now to partner with us in making change!
