A Window Between Worlds (AWBW) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to using art to help end domestic violence. Since 1991, AWBW has provided creative expression as a healing tool for over 74,000 battered women and their children in crisis shelters, transitional homes, and outreach centers throughout the United States.
By providing an environment that promotes healing, art workshops help
women and children to develop a renewed sense of hope and possibility
that profoundly impacts future decisions regarding the direction of
their lives, their relationships, and how to stay safe. Art empowers survivors to transform how they view themselves, allowing them to see past the abusive messages they learned from their batterers and rebuild their self-confidence. Helping even one woman or child overcome the trauma of abuse will impact their world and everyone they encounter for the rest of their lives. .
The Windows Workshops provide weekly art workshops to women and children in domestic violence shelters, transitional housing, and outreach centers. They offer a safe, gentle and effective way for survivors to express and relase painful feelings and begin to build self confidence. The Art Exhibitions provide a powerful way to break the silence that allows domestic violence to continue in our communities.
