Family art project for Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Archuleta County Victim Assistance Program’s Nurturing WISE Teens and their parents have been working on mask creations to depict their thoughts and feelings regarding domestic violence and the effect it has on children and adults.

This art project originated back in the ’90s in Venice Beach, Calif., as “A Window Between Worlds Unmasking Me/Unmasking the Future” multimedia project designed to enable children, teens and young adults who have witnessed or experienced domestic violence, to express themselves and educate their communities in a powerful and unique way.

It continues to be a powerful exhibit throughout the country.

The Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts graciously displayed our masks in the Center for the Arts Gallery in order to be presented before all of the Thingamajig Theater Company’s October performances of “The Turn of the Screw.”

 Archuleta County Victim Assistance Program, a nonprofit agency, promotes the belief that all people have the right to live free from violence by providing support and advocacy services for victims and education for youth and our community.
