Some survivors of sexual assault have chosen to tell their stories through creative mediums. Jessica Caldas is an Atlanta-based artist and activist who tells women’s stories through her artwork. She wants her art to create space for her audience to have difficult conversations about trauma and healing.
We spoke with Caldas about the role of art in processing her own sexual assault.
