This is What it Feels Like
Men Edmonton, Hollaback Alberta and the City of Edmonton through the Gender-based Violence initiative have partnered to bring This Is What It Feels Like to Edmonton for 2017-2018. This powerful auditory art exhibit aims to shift attitudes and beliefs about street harassment by providing individuals the experience of being on the receiving end of catcalling and sexual harassment.
In the installation, participants walk into a dimmed enclosure to the sound of voices making harassing and objectifying comments commonly heard on the streets. The event may be triggering for some. Staff and resources will be available on site.
While the event is open to everyone, men are particularly encouraged to learn what it’s like to have this kind of experience.
