Radio In A Purse(RIP) is a process which hopes to capture the topography of sexual violence in the city, through the experience of its students. As the name evokes, Radio In A Purse is a handbag filled with audio objects (recorders, laptop, headphones) as well as other facilitation techniques and cues to encourage listening and sharing of experiences. The purse is open for acts of listening (through stories already collected in the purse) and acts of recording (through recording one’s testimony, experience, a challenge, confusion or question.) Borrowing from older methods of community radio, the purse can be easily set up and dismantled and can adapt itself to various public spaces.The purse has already begun its travels to colleges, situating itself in informal public spaces in and around campuses, to collect stories, testimonials, questions and challenges around sexual violence.
