About Tessa’s Project
With these Hands shares challenging, complex and under-discussed stories of sexual assault and recovery. It explores the role of listening in the recovery of both survivors and those responsible for sexual harm. WTH is made in collaboration with contributing artists and consultation with survivor-run organisation SLEEC and supported by researchers at the Centre for Sexology and Sexuality Studies at Malmö University.
