“My art is my story. There are several things that I’ve experienced, survived from. My style is already there and I just sort of incorporated their stories and then created the paintings based on that.” – Betsy Bohrer
Inside the Red Tent
Alison Foley-Rothrock is the founder of the Red Tent Initiative in Lakeland, a grassroots movement led by survivors to end domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. Alison’s goal is to “educate the community, push for societal change and to lend a hand to those who are still in the victim stage of becoming survivors." Every year, on March 31, the Rent Tent collaborates with local artists and activists to host a community event to raise awareness and funds by sharing the personal stories of survivors using visual art, music, theater, poetry, dance, and storytelling. Organizers encourage you to keep the conversation going year-round and contribute to the cause by visiting www.redtentinitiative.org.#ICantKeepQuiet #SexualAssaultAwarenessMonthFeatured artists and activists:Betsy Bohrer Robyn Wilson Patience Elett Stefan Dolbashian Molly Ahler Ashley Newsome Melanie Parker Goodrich K.D.
