Awakenings
provides survivors of sexual violence

WITH A TRAUMA-INFORMED, INCLUSIVE ART-MAKING EXPERIENCE THAT ENCOURAGES HEALING 

Awakenings is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing survivors of sexual violence with a trauma-informed, inclusive art-making experience that encourages healing.

We are committed to creating a physical and virtual artistic space in which to engage in an open dialogue that promotes healing of survivors through the arts and furthers awareness and understanding of sexual violence. We do this by producing year-round art events and opportunities spanning every medium, including visual art, literature, music, theater, and performance art that are made by, for, and about survivors of sexual violence. 

Our Event Food Sponsor

We are thrilled Dimo’s Pizza is our food sponsor for A Dozen Creations. Dimo’s champions unity, development and justice for our guests, our team and our communities in order to lead the charge in creating a positive, long-lasting impact.  

Thank you, Dimo’s, for sponsoring our work!
