OF SURVIVORS OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE
Join us for Awakenings’ upcoming fundraising event, Making Visible. The event will be held on Friday, April 20th, 2018, at Awakenings’ gallery space in Ravenswood. Proceeds will benefit an exciting docket of programming that benefits survivors of sexual violence who wish to heal through the creative arts.
We are undergoing remodeling! Under the huge generosity of Designs4Dignity, our office and gallery space is undergoing construction and renovation for the first two weeks of April 2018. You may always contact us via email or phone.
