The role of arts in ending child sexual abuse
This web conference is the sixth in a series of nine web conferences on Ending Child Sexual Abuse. This is a collaboration between PreventConnect and Ms. Foundation for Women. Please see the materials and recordings from the previous web conference “Healthy sexuality and caring connections: Foundations for prevention.”
The sixth web conference on October 10, 2012 is titled “The Role of Arts in Ending Child Sexual Abuse.” The arts are a powerful way to give voice to what otherwise may not be said. The arts are often a catalyst to action. The arts inspire viewers to see things through a different lens and define and experience in a way that links to taking action. The arts are a way to tap into the heart and through the experience of the art bring attention to an issue. This web conference focuses on how to use the arts to help end child sexual abuse.
