About the project
The Testimony Project is a bilingual multimedia project, based in Washington D.C., and Medellín, Colombia, established by Tanya Horwitz and Amanda Draper in July 2016. Tanya and Amanda are two D.C. natives committed to raising awareness about the prevalence of gender-based violence and sexual violence, while supporting victim-survivors of various ages, sexes, gender identities, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities, cultural backgrounds, nationalities, abilities, socioeconomic classes, religious backgrounds, etc. by giving them the opportunity to give testimony about their experiences in a supportive space and be heard. There are three different components of this project, a feature-length documentary film, an artistic and writing component, and a self-made video component. We are encouraging people to participate in whatever they feel the most comfortable doing.
