FYI is a collective of artists, educators and activists.
“Our mission is to engage youth in safe, accessible conversations about sexual health and sexual violence through participatory theatre”
FYI is currently based in Chicago, IL, with additional programming running in Pittsburgh, PA.
Months of performance and research by the group led to a performance in which they debunk the fear of talking about sex.
As they toured, they recognized that the topic of sexual violence was prevalent in the conversations with youth in many communities. They have expanded programming to include performance workshops on sexual violence “to responsibly acknowledge that sexual health education cannot be effective without including education around sexual violence.”
A portion of the proceeds from my artwork sold this month will be donated to FYI. Please visit their website to find out ways to get involved, or have them perform at your establishment!
