Women who have been victimized by violence often lack the support and resources needed to come forward. For artists who have been affected by the trauma of sexual assault, rarely, if ever, are there adequate opportunities to create work that addresses their stories within and beyond the larger art community.

On Sunday, January 27th at 2pm, Los Angeles artist and expressive arts therapist, Elizabeth Tobias, will amplify her fusion of social practice, performance and sound to debut "Survivor! Share your 98 Second Story" at 2019 The Los Angeles Art Show. This immersive project addresses the sexual assault epidemic, one of the most pervasive, yet most under reported crimes. Survivor! addresses the staggering statistic that every 98 seconds, there is a sexual assault in America.

Weaving together spoken word and improvised sound, Elizabeth Tobias will perform with an ensemble of artist survivors to collectively promote needed awareness and advocacy for sexual assault survivors in the art community and throughout the public sphere.
