at the Skirball from the community engagement project created by
Kim Abeles on the occasion of the 20th Anniversary of A Window Between Worlds.
A Window Between Worlds, the only national nonprofit dedicated to using art to end domestic violence, has been changing the lives of battered women and children since 1991. Through art programs and individual creative expression, survivors of domestic violence are given the opportunity to release their feelings, reclaim their sense of power and self-worth, and find hope for a brighter future.
Today AWBW reaches over 60,000 participants annually in 25 states. The art programs are offered to shelters, transitional homes and outreach centers at no cost. It is through the support of our caring community and friends that we are able to continue providing creative workshops to the growing number of women and children in crisis.
Thank you for being part of helping survivors heal the emotional wounds of domestic violence.
