Scream with Me Now: Music as a tool for generating awareness about relationship violence and sexual assault

Session Description: Jamie Wyman combines her anti-violence experience with a live performance of her music to lead this interactive workshop. Participants will be asked to focus on the goals of the summit, of their work in general, and for their own lives.  Together we will explore roadblocks to change (intrapersonal, interpersonal, systemic) while also imagining what real, lasting change would feel like.  As Jamie performs her music, participants will illustrate their collective goals in a chalk mural, creating a physical representation.  As a community we have the answers to ending violence.  If we focus on the positive goals, we still acknowledge that the problems exist, but we give them less power.  Like John Lennon’s “Imagine” and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream,” we must truly be able to imagine the outcome we want in order to make it a reality.  The aim of this workshop is to leave participants with a clear focus on their goals and a renewed energy to move forward with creative passion in their anti-violence work.
