WINTHROP — A free Survivors’ Masks Art Exhibit workshop “Honoring The Journey — Breaking the Myths” is set for 6 p.m. Thursday, April 30, at Sexual Assault Crisis & Support Center, 16 Commerce Drive.

Survivors of sexual abuse often feel like they live with a mask to the world around them. Protection, shame, fear, rejection, are just a few of the most common reasons survivors develop these “masks” during their journey of healing, according to a news release from the center. The organization seeks to create an exhibit of survivors’ artwork on face masks. This artwork is meant to represent what it feels like to be a survivor in a society that often judges and assumes what it means to be a survivor of sexual abuse.
