The Survivor Arts Community is a non-profit organisation based in Glasgow that supports the artistic practices of survivors of sexual violence and domestic abuse. We are founded on the belief that not only is art healing for survivors, but survivors’ creativity is a vital contribution to the art community. The Survivor Arts Community runs free creative projects and one-off workshops for survivors across different artforms, leading to public outputs including writing publications, song recordings, exhibitions and performances.
We aim to:
Support survivors’ artistic practices
Create community among survivors while engaging the local community
Promote art as activism by platforming survivors' art to the public
Challenge public misconceptions regarding survivors and abuse
If this sounds like something you can support, please consider donating to the Survivor Arts Community. Alongside sales and small grants, donations help us to continue with our programmes
The Survivor Arts Community is run by Eloise Birtwhistle and Angie Spoto. We always work collaboratively - both with external organisations and hiring individual artists. If you would like to collaborate with us, please get in touch!
