We Amplify Voices presents
'Songs for Survivors'
Featuring the voices of four groups to raise awareness of those impacted by domestic violence and the power of healing through art
'Songs for Survivors' is a project in collaboration with ODVN, with the purpose of amplifying the voices of those impacted by domestic violence, with an inside look on the process of healing through art.
Connecting their groups with our artists to write four original songs, representing each group, speaking from their perspectives and journeys.
A group of young children, a teen group, advocates from Artemis ODVN, and a group of ORW Turning Point survivors.
This project also includes intimate interviews with ODVN staff, participants and artists releasing in October in support of Domestic Violence Awareness month.
The EP featuring all four songs, releases November 1st on all streaming platforms.
Special thanks to Ohio Arts Council for supporting this project.
