Exhale: A Night of Expression, Creativity, & Healing

What is Exhale?

Exhale is an interactive event and art exhibit in support of survivors of sexual violence. We recognize that sexual violence and the emotions associated with supporting survivors, healing, and growing from these experiences are complex and come in many shapes and sizes. Exhale's goal is to create a safe space in hopes that participants can find support through community and through their creative outlets.

The Artwork

We encourage students, staff, faculty, and Lubbock community members to submit original visual or performance art to be displayed as a part of the exhibit.
