Archive 2013

2013 was a year in which new venues joined continuing venues to sponsor new and exciting Violence Transformed visual and performing arts exhibits, with the Harriet Tubman House Gallery of United South End Settlements, Cambridge College and Jamaica Plain’s Connelly Library each hosting a unique Violence Transformed event.  Lesley University continued its involvement with Violence Transformed, kicking off the year by  joining in the world wide “One Billion Rising” call to express solidarity with women and to bring awareness of women’s struggles through dance.  It was also the first year in which events sponsored in the Fall of 2012 by Cambridge College and in the Winter of 2012 by Lesley University laid the groundwork for Spring “follow-ups” in 2013.   In Oct 2012, Violence Transformed joined with the City if Cambridge, Cambridge College, the Victims of Violence Program and other community organizations to launch the “21 days of Questions,365 Days of Action” Campaign to address domestic violence.   In the Spring 2013, this action was followed by the “Artists Respond to Domestic Violence”

At the Annual State House exhibit, Violence Transformed presented Artist Honorariums to two young singers, Carol Rogers and Kassidy deSaugus (selected for the award by Deon Mose of “Music Saves Lives”), and to SMFA students Scott Cummings, Katie Wild and Greg Lookerse for their co-curation of our first official Student Faculty Exhibit. In addition, we were similarly able to honor three of our main collaborating organizations: Ubuntu Arts, Roxbury Community College Media Arts Center and the Museum of the National Center of Afro-American Artists.
