Mirabelle Jones

Mirabelle Jones is a researcher, artist, and creative technologist living in Copenhagen, Denmark. Mirabelle founded Art Against Assault, a nonprofit organization giving survivors a platform to create artwork which speaks out against assault, after being sexually assaulted during their second year of graduate school. They were drugged by a person they met at a bar. Talking to a crisis counselor from RAINN enabled them to believe that it was not their fault and online forums helped them feel like she was no longer alone. The person who assaulted them never spent a day in jail, and while Mirabelle is still angry, they continue to use their voice and art to speak out against assault.

“I’d be lying today if I said that I’m fine. I’m still angry. I’m angry at what happened to me, and I’m angrier still at what happens to hundreds of people in the United States every day and what happens to thousands of people around the world every day. I refuse to accept this as normal.”

 “I’m proud to say that I’ve been able to use my voice to speak out against what I refuse to accept as normal.”
