Where Are They Now?
In 2015, we awarded these three women with
The Feminism in Action Grant.
Here is an update on what they are doing now.
Mattie Loyce and Alicia Chatterjee
Created by Mattie Loyce and Alicia Chatterjee, The Art of Life After project seeks to create space for survivors and supportive communities to celebrate art and creativity that may have arisen from the complexity of a life including experiences of violence. The Art of Life After started with one art show and through personal work and community support is developing into a larger multidimensional project.
The next installment is The Art of Life After: Workshop Series, a weekend event that will focus on building strategies and capacities for self-care and community-care through creative and expressive healing workshops for survivors of intimate violence. The Workshop Series will culminate in a final show of voice and intentional witnessing, open to the public. To learn more about this project, please visit www.artoflifeafter.org.
