4thU Artivists to Present WRITING ON THE WALL for Domestic Violence Awareness Month

4thU Artivists, a NYC-based creative nonprofit, announces their Fall 2017 performance, Writing on the Wall, which will raise funding and awareness to help end violence against women and girls. To date, they have raised over $110,000 for numerous organizations.

"Writing on the Wall emphasizes the need to shed light on the issue of under-reported rape on campus," said Erin Bigelow, Creative Director of 4thU Artivists. "At 4thU Artivists, we work to end violence against women and girls, making us proud to be able to promote the need for more discussion about consent vs. non-consent. We hope this production will encourage schools to take more of an active role in educating young adults and eventually decrease the number of rape incidents on campus."

"It is my hope that viewers of this play will engage in a discourse about themes of consent, power, deception, the value of truth and the protection of institutional legacy at the expense of personal liberty" said Charles Nuckolls, Playwright and Director of Writing on the Wall. "Unfortunately, these are issues that prove to be everlasting societal concerns."

4thU Artivists is a community of performers, creatives, healers, and communication professionals who volunteer their time in order to save lives. Their mission is to raise awareness and funds to end violence against women and girls globally and locally through creative projects (theater and dance productions, concerts, and art shows) presented under the auspices of the Fourth Universalist Society, a 501(c)(3) Unitarian-Universalist (UU) congregation in New York City. Donations can be made at

This day and subsequent month were created to bring together anti-violence advocates from across the United States, all of whom were fighting violence against women and children. Today, this month is honored with numerous local, state, and national events and activities intended to honor those who have died as a result of domestic violence and celebrating those who have survived. In addition, advocates use this month to call attention to this ongoing problem and to bring together those working to end it.
