Our mission is to empower women, non-binary folx and people who identify on the gender queer spectrum to reclaim their bodies. True You Today was born from the desire to support Survivors of gendered abuse through art, movement and creativity.
Using movement enables people to rebuild their relationship with their body and to feel their strength and power to express themselves creatively, providing a new path to healing and physical freedom.
Our sessions include dance, yoga, circus and photography, all of which are focused on physical and mental health, wellbeing, confidence and self-esteem to build trust in themselves and bonds in their local community.
As a result of listening to the people we support during the COVID-19 crisis, we have expanded our definition of Survivors to be self-determined. We have also made our program available to frontline workers of gendered violence support services. Our remit is to ensure that everyone in the chain-of-care is well-supported by our project.
As part of the project's design, we hosted some workshops on intersectionality, anti-racism and disclosures within sports and circus arts.
The wonderful artist Meera Osborne documented these for us.
