The Blue Rose

Mission:  Healing Through Art 

  • Goal:  Empowering victims to break the silence and find their voice



  The Blue Rose Healing Through Art exposes the perpetrators, empowers the victims, and educates family, friends and community about the traumas of sexual abuse and domestic violence.

The Amazing WoMen Poetry/Artist Showcase:

Occurs during the month of April in honor of National Child Abuse and Sexual Abuse Awareness Month.  We are looking to add October to our calendar in honor of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.    Victims and Supporters, both men and women, use their art in this storyboard showcase to educate, communicate and entertain while empowering others to "Find Their Voice" as we "Break the Silence."  This storyboard incorporates poetry, music, song and dance (depending on the venues) to speak out against sexual abuse, domestic violence and empowerment. If you are an artist who would like to be involved please contact us.   You do not have to be a victim to be involved.
 

Finding Your Voice Workshop:

These are workshops that enhances the support group model by using poetry to help spark the conversations and ensure victims they are not alone.  With this we will journal and teach simple poetry techniques.  These workshops are facilitated by a survivor/member of The Blue Rose, but not a licensed mental health provider.  We will have a writing workshop as soon as we can get a group of 6-8 people.  
 
Educational lecture/Guest Speaker:

Survivors, members of the Blue Rose will come out to various organizations to share our poetry in a storyboard or monologue fashion.  To educate and break the silence.  For general information or to invite a member to speak at your organization please email the-blue-rose@hotmail.com or fill out our contact page.

  

When your are upset tense angry or sad...

  • Do you listen to music, sing, dance, draw, color, write stories, write poetry, play an instrument?
  • Do these forms of artist release allow you to breathe, calm down, and think straight?
  • Do you believe we all learn in different ways?

A yes to any of these questions supports the mission
