Project Unbreakable is a photography project that allows the sharing of personal stories and experience of sexual abuse. It provides a very powerful insight into the nature of sexual abuse and the attitudes of abusers. It also gives the survivors a platform to be heard.
The mission of Project Unbreakable is to increase awareness of the issues surrounding sexual assault and encourage the act of healing through art. Since the project’s conception in October 2011 by then nineteen year old Grace Brown, it has featured over three thousand images of sexual assault survivors holding posters with quotes from their attackers. Project Unbreakable has been featured in media outlets such as Glamour, TIME, Buzzfeed, and The Guardian.
The site has grown very quickly as this post shows. They also have a Facebook page. [Warning: If you visit the site some of the language used is very explicit.]
I remember when we hit 100! And 500! And 1000!
100,000. That’s incredible. This project has grown rapidly and has been able to reach so many more people than I ever expected. I am humbled and honored and grateful it has resonated with each of you. Thank you for your support of us, of our work, and most of all, of the people who share their stories through these images. We are all one.
