Want a Fiona Concert in your community?

Great, so do we!

Our mission is to undo the taboo around child sexual abuse (CSA) by bringing CSA awareness to communities in a non-threatening and uplifting way–through music and the arts.

Teaching child sexual abuse safety can be as easy as teaching children to cross the street, but parents and caregivers don’t realize this because no one wants to talk about it.

Using concerts and other music and arts-based shows, we can start these conversations in a simple, straight forward and lighthearted way–opening the door for future prevention by parents and caregivers, and freeing adult survivors from the inappropriate shame they so often carry.

What would hosting a Fiona Project event look like?

That’s really up to you. Be as traditional or creative as you like. You can go big or you can go small. It really just depends on how much investment you want to put into creating your event.

Choosing a location

If you like to entertain in your home and can fit 15+ people, you might want to have a house concert. House concerts are wonderful, intimate events that can be created on nearly any budget. You can do potluck and BYOB for a picnic-style concert. Or sell tickets to pay your musician(s)/performers and serve snacks and drinks that you provide. Choose a style that fits your personality and your guests.

If you are part of spiritual center or other community that might like to do something a little larger, feel free to reach out to them and see if they are interested in providing the venue if you help coordinate.

Choosing a format

First and foremost, choose a style and layout that you and your guests will enjoy. Whether that’s comedy, music, an art show or something else, it doesn’t matter. As long as it’s creative, people will enjoy themselves.

Then decide how to work in CSA prevention or healing. For example, you could:

  • Work CSA stats and prevention tips into the show when you remind folks to get food or check out your musician’s merch table.
  • Hand out mini CSA prevention and healing flyers. (Download and print, or if you prefer, you can contact us and have some shipped to you.)
  • Include a heartfelt candlelight ceremony that acknowledges survivors as part of your event.
  • Raise funds for a CSA program or charity of your choice and make sure to announce during the show what services the organization provides and what their mission is. 

When it’s time to advertise, tag us in your social marketing

If you decide to market your event publicly, be sure to post it on social media and tag The Fiona Project in a meaningful way in your event description and marketing. If we see it, we’ll share it on our social platforms for extra exposure.
