Who can participate?
Mere Objects is for people of all genders, ages, and nationalities who have experienced any form of sexual violence, including rape, sexual assault or abuse, sex trafficking, etc.
What do I send?
Choose a tiny object or objects that represent you or your story.
(Please, no illegal, perishable, or dangerous items.)
*** Please check that your object(s) will fit: the mouth of the bottle is 5mm / 3/16" wide. ***
What should I say?
Write a little note so I know you're not a troll. (Anonymous notes are fine!)
I may share your words, but I will never share names or other identifying info.
Where does it go?
Send it to:
PO Box 6
Leavenworth, WA, 98826
New objects are continually added as they are received. It typically takes about 7-10 days for mail to reach me from within the US, and 2-3 weeks for mail to reach me from international locations.
You can check the project's Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter feeds to see your object and description appear, or watch for it on the Participants blog here on the Mere Objects website. (True confession -- sometimes the social media feeds get updated faster than the website, so if you're feeling anxious, check there first.)
