STER, TIER, RAI to hold campaign against sexual violence

The HERE Exhibition seeks to empower survivors of sexual violence to break the violence and regain their freedom.

HERE Photo Exhibition

Since her establishment, STER Initiative has supported over 200 rape survivors in Nigeria since 2014, engaged in projects/community outreaches, being featured at International conferences and was recently featured in Guardian Nigeria as one of the 16 leading women-led organizations changing the lives of Nigerian women and girls.

The HERE Exhibition seeks to empower survivors of sexual violence to break the violence and regain their freedom. The photos in the exhibition highlights places where rape occurs, thereby disrupting the stigmatization that people who are violated in such locations face.

The use of imagery (photography) is strategic as it creates a body of work that literally hits close to home; reflecting the reality of how close survivors often are to their abusers.

The exhibition also serves as a fundraiser for a rehabilitation center where women and girls will be sheltered, helping them to reintegrate into the society. While at the center, they will be empowered with life skills to enable them become economically independent of their abuser in cases where this occurs at the home front

HERE Exhibition Opening 30th of April will feature conversations and spoken word with speakers like International award winning poet, writer and performer, Titilope Sonuga and Media entrepreneur, Arit Okpo.

Stand to End Rape (STER) Initiative's HERE Exhibition collaborates with The Initiative for Equal Rights (TIERs) and Revolving Art Incubator (RAI).

Date: April 30 - May 14, 2017.

Venue: Silverbird Galleria, Ahmadu Bello way, Victoria Island Lagos.
