Surviving The Mic is a collaborative organization of survivors who are dedicated to creating a safe and affirming creative spaces for survivors of trauma (sexual trauma, racial trauma, violent trauma). Through their series of spoken word and performance-based events they seek to create a space for testimonies about sexual violence and to build skills to elevate those testimonials.

The goals of Surviving the Mic are:

  • to help survivor artists hone their creative voices in order to tell their stories in powerful, impactful and artistic ways
  • to create curricula and toolkits that can be used a model for other communities who’d like to make safe space
  • to support cultural, emotional, physical, mental and economic well-being for survivor artists through safe and affirming performances, workshops, publications and professional practice training and support
  • to provide opportunities for those who are not survivors to listen and learn from survivors
