Home Economics examines the challenges, impacts, and societal stigma around the validation of vaginal trauma experiences.
The team and their inclusive mentor group represent a broad spectrum of perspectives, all with lived vaginal experiences that have shaped their identity. The pilot presentation was held during an artistic residency at Ross Creek Centre for the Arts, and was incredibly powerful as a collective viewing.
The audience underlined the urgency of such potent work, especially with the careful attention to the audience’s experience of this sensitive subject and creating a safe space for audience members to reflect and heal from individual trauma.
The Home Economics’ artistic process has taken great care to ensure safe language around trauma and consent, which has been guided by a specialist Mentor Council: Margot Durling, Kathryn Hominick , and Kate MacDonald.
