Q&A with Nast Women CT founder Luciana McClure
and trans author/poet Emmett Burns follows film screening
About TESTIMONIALS, Luciana McClure and Emmett Burns
How can we create a safe place, when we chose to ignore the stories of those who have had their voice shut down and taken away?
In light of the #METOO movement, Nasty Women Connecticut has collected and documented stories from all people who chose to share their story in a safe place anonymously or not.
Storytelling has been historically utilized as a way of connecting us to one another, within the hope of creating empathy and the crucial dialogue that’s needed when we chose to ignore facts.
The collected testimonials will be screened early in the summer in varied locations throughout Connecticut, with the intent of breaking the silence through a collective symphony of stories of harassment and abuse of power.
*This project has been made possible thanks to the Department of Arts, Culture and Tourism in New Haven through their Vitality Mayor’s Grant Program.*
