456

In 2018, according to statistics, 456 violations will be reported in Cleveland. These data are, however, much more than a disturbing quantitative analysis; in fact, this figure is a poignant snapshot of human beings at a time of great vulnerability. More than a frightening number, this figure predicts 456 situations of defenselessness, 456 unprotected people deprived of their liberty in their own streets.

Project 456 focuses on the role that the environment plays in exacerbating the risk of sexual violence. 456 is a call to action using art to reclaim public space as our space. There is an urgent need to create places where our bodies can exist and coexist. This project aims to bring together voices, identities and humanity to stand together and reclaim Cleveland’s public spaces as spaces for freedom, expression and tranquility.

This research began with a personal experience that led Angélica Dass to discover her own vulnerability and the insecurity she felt in Cleveland’s public spaces.

Rape Crisis Center supports survivors of rape and sexual abuse, promotes healing and prevention, and advocates for social change.
