Who We Are

Our purpose is to create healing through art for female sexual abuse survivors. Our mission is to create advocacy, awareness, community, education, and resources for survivors through various art and social events, along with artistic therapeutic programs of healing.

1 in 2 women in the United States will experience some form of sexual assault in their lifetime.

1 in 6 women are the victims of rape or attempted rape.

94% of female rape victims experience symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

33% of female rape survivors contemplate suicide. 

Sexual trauma can have devastating psychological, emotional, and physical side effects for the survivors and those around them. 

How We Help Survivors

The Usual Artspects develops interactive healing programs of creativity and self-expression to complement traditional counseling and therapy. Creative intervention has proven to foster powerful healing properties and sense of well-being and can be a valuable tool to help survivors address the often unbearable pain in their lives. Our programs and classes will include Art Therapy, Music Therapy, Dance Therapy, Sound Healing, Writing Therapy, and Martial Arts. The participatory programs help relieve the pain and suffering of sexual trauma and build self-esteem toward building a productive, joyful, and fulfilling life.

Art heals, and you can help.

Creativity

With this initiative, our goal is to promote great opportunities for female survivors through creativity. This includes everything from providing survivors the space to sell their handmade art and products, to providing creative healing programs involving art, music, and writing.

Empowerment

At The Usual Artspects, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts by encouraging women to take their power back. Abuse and trauma often leaves one feeling helpless and fearful. With the right healing tools and the chance to share their stories, we help women gain their lives back.
