“Ni une más” (Not one more) is a cross-disciplinary project focused on survivors of sexual violence, funded through the U-M Arts Initiative. Running through the 2023-2024 academic year, the project builds on collaboration between artists, journalists, musicians, dancers, performers, and survivors to create performances and other art. 

The collaborative team will produce a multimedia performance event named after the current slogan of standing up against domestic violence in Puerto Rico, that aims to build solidarity and forge a path to healing for survivors of gender-based violence. Through music, dance, poems, theatre, visual arts, and audience engagement, we center stories of survivors’ agency, resilience, and empowerment. 

In fall semester, the group will facilitate a series of arts-based workshops, inviting survivors to explore a healing pathway via the arts. Participants will choose an artistic medium (dance, painting, creative writing, or music) to tell their story, centering their agency and strengths. In each medium, participants will work with a trauma-sensitive skilled arts mentor.
