“Ink Blot Project is dedicated to raising voices and funding for crisis centers that
support the survivors of rape and incest through the creation of fine art.”

(Winner of the CAAP Grant for 2005)The goal of my project is to raise awareness and funding for the many victims of sexual assault.
My project will give the victims
of rape an identity and move them beyond the nameless statistics our society likes to hide behind. As you know even though the support for victims through 1.800 numbers and support groups seams to be expanding the numbers of victims continues to climb. I believe this is because we are living in a rape culture. We exist in a society that perpetuates the domination of others through the judicial and educational systems. The continued practice of minimizing the consequence of these crimes and sweeping the victims under the proverbial statistical carpet needs to end.

The goal of my current project was to raise awareness and education for the many victims of sexual assault. My project will give the victims of rape and incest an identity and move them beyond the nameless statistics our society likes to hide behind. As you know even though the support for victims through 1.800 numbers and activist groups seams to be expanding the numbers of victims continues to climb. (Current statistics have the rates of sexual assault on women at 1 in 5 and 1 in 7 men.)
