"Silent Witness" Exhibit

Monday, October 25, 2021 to Friday, October 29, 2021

Once again the Title IX Office and SPARC are excited to be bringing the “Silent Witness” Exhibit to the WPI Campus starting next week. This exhibit was made possible through a partnership with Worcester State University and Quinsigamond Community College. The Silent Witness Exhibit is a visual representation consisting of life-sized, red colored silhouettes of the women, men and children who were victims of acts of Domestic Violence and/or Dating violence perpetrated by a spouse or former spouse, partner or former partner, parent, step-parent, relative or known person.

The goal of the Exhibit is to create an engaging display that will rally the WPI community to create awareness of Domestic and Dating Violence through education materials and conversations that will begin as a result of the “Silent Witness” Exhibit.

In 1990, the Silent Witness Initiative began promoting and education to support an end to domestic violence through community-based exhibits. It started with a small group of volunteers in one state and grew into an international presence, with projects in all 50 states and 23 countries.
