Viv Gordon Company
December 2019 - August 2021
In my time with Viv, I helped Viv transition from Viv Gordon (independent artist) to Viv Gordon Company CIC (as 1 of the Company's 3 Directors). I acted as the engagement lead: leading on community engagement / participation, evaluation, and marketing.
VGC's work is a campaign to increase visibility, voice and community with adult
survivors of childhood sexual abuse (CSA).
Our work seeks to remove barriers to participation for survivors and drive narrative change - moving away from ideas of victimhood, guilt, shame, isolation and cultural silencing - towards celebrating survival, joining together and laying claim to cultural space to make noise about survivor experiences, rights and concerns.
As a Producer for Viv Gordon / Viv Gordon Company, I produced 'Cutting Out'.
'Cutting Out' is part performance, part installation, part collective act of resistance.
As part of this project we aim to cut out 11 million paper dolls. To bear witness to the staggering amount of survivors there are in the UK, to mourn the childhoods lost but to also represent each and every heroic story of survival.
