A Little Bird Told Me...  Communicating Street Harassment Concepts through the Arts

The Little Bird project is an art-activism project designed to address street harassment in SF (catcalls, lewd comments, groping, and other public sexual harassment) through multimedia art-based products.  The project will promote local artists and help businesses by enhancing PR, boosting staff morale, and improving customers’ experience on- or near-site.  

The Little Bird kickoff event is being publicized by HollaBack!, an internationally-recognized women’s rights organization.  Through this event, we will gain logo ideas for merchandise and prompt dialogue on the issue of street harassment.  The event will feature the work of several local artists and a silent auction courtesy of our amazing contributing businesses.

Featured Artists
  • Amelia Lewis
  • Eugene Rodriguez
  • Beatrice Thomas
  • Mission Mini Comix
  • Trina Robbins (spoken word)
