The talk was really powerful and informative! She did a fantastic job of reviewing the research while never losing sight of the emotional weight of the subject matter, and keeping everything very concrete and relevant for a general audience. This was a really valuable addition to the sexual violence awareness month events.
I connected with Squeak on many points. Loved her Tina story and I love that she uses text. I often want to use text but I am encouraged not to. I also love her idea that making art means being ambitious and being afraid, but to just go for it. Oil paints do give you the liberty of being experimental and just covering it if you don't like it. Thanks for the pep talk and encouragement.
