Tour Embodying Justice

In partnership with KAN WIN, our new exhibit Embodying Justice showcases the power of survivors’ storytelling through art to instigate social and political change. Awakenings seeks to promote awareness of the ongoing activism of survivors of Japanese military sexual slavery, who were euphemistically called “comfort women,” before and during WWII.
Embodying Justice  opens June 19 and runs through December, 2021. RSVP to set up your in-person tour or receive an access code to view the virtual exhibit.

Issue 12 of Awakened Voices

Awakenings is proud to announce the publication of Issue 12 of Awakened Voices. In our first ever unthemed issue, we’ve asked survivors, allies, and advocates to guide the issue through the conversations they’d like our community to be having around survivorship and healing.

Self Care for Caregivers

At Awakenings, we understand the critical role caregivers play in the healing journey of others. We also know that we cannot care for others when our own cups are empty. That’s why Awakenings, with support from The Chicago Foundation for Women, is presenting  “Self Care for Caregivers.”  This suite contains a variety of journal prompts, artistic activities, and meditations designed to offer a self care solution for any moment.

Judith's Circle

Judith’s Circle is Awakenings’ squad of core, committed, monthly donors. Members play a critical role in supporting survivor artists and sustaining our work. Members of Judith’s Circle will gain access to exclusive content from our survivor artists, invitations to private First Look Nights for all exhibits, and more. Demonstrate your ongoing commitment to our mission to showcase the creative expression of survivors of sexual violence.
