ABOUT THE GRANT
- $6,630 to Arts Service Initiative of WNY to support Typography of Woman: I Am Not Invisible (MAP 2019)
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Typography of Woman: I Am Not Invisible is a multi-disciplinary production designed to leverage the power and universal language of the arts specifically to bring attention to one of the world’s most heinous and hidden crimes and violation of human rights: Human Trafficking. Typography will present original works of art written, composed, choreographed, or visually created by survivors, and interpreted by professional artists who have also overcome significant challenges, not necessarily human trafficking, but powerful enough to give them empathy and deep compassion for the survivors. The visual arts pieces on display include a written explanation by the artist if desired or simply left to the viewer to interpret. The medium will be the artist’s choice with no judgment.
