Surviving the Mic is a collaborative organization of survivors who are dedicated to creating safe and affirming creative spaces for survivors of trauma. Our mission is to uplift the narratives and artistic excellence of survivor artists through our reading series, survivor-centered workshops, publications, toolkits, social media campaigns, public speaking, community outreach and facilitating, exhibitions and touring.

The goals of Surviving the Mic are:

  • to help survivor artists hone their creative voices in order to tell their stories in powerful, impactful and artistic ways
  • to create curricula and toolkits that can be used a model for other communities who’d like to make safe space
  • to support cultural, emotional, physical, mental and economic well-being for survivor artists through safe and affirming performances, workshops, publications and professional practice training and support
  • to provide opportunities for those who are not survivors to listen and learn from survivors
