Sanación De Generaciones: Esperanza Del Mañana/Healing Generations: Hope Of Tomorrow

Healing to Action, a non-profit, Chicago-based grassroots organization whose mission is to build a worker-led movement to end gender-based violence. is proud to open a community-designed art exhibit, Sanación De Generaciones: Esperanza Del Mañana/Healing Generations: Hope of Tomorrow.

This bilingual art show features ofrendas, or personal altars, designed by eight of Healing to Action's worker leaders, who are using the exhibit to launch a broader campaign to address the root causes of gender-based violence in Chicago's low-income communities of color.

Each ofrenda honors the leaders' past, present and future journeys, and represents their personal truths that have been silenced across generations, cultures, and gender lines.

This project was done over six months in collaboration with Awakenings Art Gallery, a multi-media gallery which makes visible the artistic expressions of rape and sexual abuse survivors.

WHEN: Opening Reception, Friday, March 15, 6 p.m. - p.m.

Leaders will share their artistic process and an upcoming campaign they are launching to address gender-based violence in their communities.

The exhibit runs from March 15- May 18.

WHERE: Awakenings Art Gallery, 4001 N. Ravenswood Ave, Suite 204C
