 Arts-based interventions for sexual violence prevention

iMPACTS co-investigators Dr Claudia Mitchell and Dr Mindy Carter, collaborator Maria Ezcurra, and past research assistant Dr Chloe Garcia are proud to present A Toolkit: Arts-based Interventions for Sexual Violence Prevention.

This toolkit shares a collection of creative strategies and methodologies for developing and implementing transformative arts-based workshops on sexual violence within community settings. It was created by scholars from iMPACTS in partnership with Institute for Human Development and Well-Being, McGill University and Participatory Cultures Lab, McGill. The toolkit shares a collection of creative strategies and methodologies for developing and implementing transformative arts-based workshops on sexual violence within community settings.

The toolkit aims to address the following objectives:

  • Provide an overview of the benefits and challenges of working with various arts-based methodologies, including participatory visual methods, participatory textiles, art museum education, image theatre, and dance.
  • Explain the uses of arts-based methodologies for sexual violence prevention and response.
  • Offer comprehensive steps for developing and implementing arts-based initiatives.
  • Present general guidelines to ensure ethical and inclusive work.

Though the primary focus of the toolkit is the university context, it may be helpful for any individual interested in learning, teaching, or researching about sexual violence topics in the classroom or their communities.
