We invite you to join us for the launch of an anthology of creative writing, art work and storytelling from Edinburgh Rape Crisis Centre’s Storytelling and Survival Group. The event will feature readings from the anthology by group members, as well as powerful commentary on the changes needed to improve justice for survivors of sexual violence, and the impact of Edinburgh Rape Crisis Centre’s services.

A dynamic, engaging and impactive event not to be missed.

‘For anyone who's carried shame,
for anyone who's felt bleak,
for anyone who's carried someone else's blame,
for anyone who once felt weak.
For anyone who challenges the current system,
for anyone who hopes for change…’
 
By L, from their poem ‘Dedication’.
