Two By Twelve is pleased to present Project Survive, a virtual exhibition that tells the authentic and complex story of Cancer through the collected words, images, and artifacts of cancer survivors. Project Survive aims to provide richer depictions of the Cancer experience through the intimate perspective of those directly impacted by using photography, in-depth interviews, and artifact collection. Survivors reflect on their experiences and address the question: What does it mean to be a Survivor?
Project Survive seeks to increase the visibility and literacy of both the Cancer experience and life afterwards. Over many years, Two By Twelve has interviewed and photographed Cancer Survivors. Personal artifacts provided by survivors, such as patient charts, diary and journal entries, poetry and art, will live alongside representations of cancer in the media in this moving and powerful exhibition. By placing artifacts in tandem with the shared stories and portraits, a digital exhibition is created that seeks to dispel the notion that there is one universal Cancer experience. It strives to illuminate the many unique, powerful, and complex stories of survivors.
Project Survive provides an inclusive and empowering platform for Cancer Survivors to tell their honest narratives, share artifacts, and engage in reflection on the Cancer experience regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, location, ability level, diagnosis, or course of treatment.
The Project Survive exhibition will be launching soon . . .
