Traveling Postcards welcomes all voices to be heard. We especially welcome voices that are more often than not marginalized on campus. We know that sexual violence can impact everyone, regardless of sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, national origin, faith or socio-economic status.
Throughout the professionally led, 90-minute workshop, every participant creates a handmade piece of art the size of a postcard that will become a gift of solidarity for a survivor. All postcards are exhibited, shared across college campuses and with domestic violence shelters nationwide or placed in our Traveling Heart hospital bags.
Our workshop is a wonderful addition to campus wellness and self-care programming.
All postcards made in 2024 will have the chance to become a part of our 'Speak Your Truth Exhibition'!
More details coming soon.

I felt so calm and still with my thoughts and normally in my busy brain I struggle with that and can never feel a sense of mental peace but I did in this time- The time flew by and I needed this.

Caroline is excellent and able to command love and direction together! I really enjoyed her group organization and how she was able to facilitate a supportive space in a short amount of time, especially when working with trauma survivors.

I definitely feel this experience was healing for not only survivors of interpersonal violence, but also participants who are dealing with challenging life situations, and in need of connection and community.
