Aria Rising's Inspiration

Aria Rising began with a group of designers at Divinemoira Studio who were inspired by the work of The Angel Band Project. This beautiful sculpture represent a sexual assault survivor, comprised entirely of recycled materials.

The spectacular, metal wings pay homage to The Angel Band Project, while the plastic tubes that make up her body provide a safe home for members of the community to leave messages of support for survivors. The notes are then collected, photographed, and shared with survivors who are in The Angel Band Project’s music therapy programs as part of their healing process. Aria Rising reflects the powerful process of healing and a survivor’s renewed hope.
