What Is Love?

WHAT IS LOVE? AN EXPLORATION THROUGH ART

On March 25, 2014 (6:00-8:00pm), Safe Harbor’s Relationship Education Project (REP) will host a community event featuring teen artists entitled “What Is Love? An Exploration through Art”. The event will be held at Grille 33 (535 Haywood Rd. Greenville); it is free of charge and open to the public. Both teens and adults are encouraged and welcomed to attend this unique event.

The event will showcase teen artists (poets, singers, dancers, rappers, improv groups, visual artists, actors and more) who will tackle the subject of dating violence and love through various forms of art.

The Relationship Education Project (REP) is Safe Harbor’s prevention program, educating high school and middle school students on the dynamics of teen dating violence and building healthy relationships. REP reached over 6,500 students throughout Greenville, Anderson, Oconee & Pickens schools in 2013. Beyond the classroom, REP’s mission is to teach students how to engage the community about the issue of dating violence. REP’s “What Is Love” event on March 25 will offer students the opportunity to be advocates in the movement to end dating and domestic violence in their community.

REP is currently looking for high school students to participate in “What Is Love”. To inquire further, please contact info@repsc.org.

I am a survivor of domestic violence.


“I didn’t know that I was being abused...

I am a survivor of domestic violence.


“I didn’t know that I was being abused because my definition of abuse looked different. My husband pushed me, but most of my suffering was verbal and psychological. I left my husband to protect our young daughter. Almost immediately I felt the weight of his oppression begin to lift. I could see a difference in my daughter as well. Then he broke into my home and assaulted me in-front of her.

I sought help and was led to Safe Harbor. My daughter and I are in counseling now. I am sorting out the mess that abuse has caused. I am finding my voice and seeking opportunities to grow and better my life as well as my daughter's. She will gauge her self-worth from my own self-worth. I must show her that she deserves the best, by expecting the best for myself.

Many years I suffered in silence. By telling my story and being honest with friends and family, I am taking control of my life again.”
