“I ask” Survivors of Violence Art Showcase
April 18 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join Safe Harbor Crisis Center and Bountiful Davis Arts Center to celebrate the strength of sexual assault survivors and share in the healing power of art. The “I ask” Survivor Art Showcase will feature powerful, original artwork created by survivors of sexual violence from all experience levels and backgrounds. The creative arts provide a space for emotional expression that can be incredibly healing for survivors as they work to move beyond the trauma of their past abuse. We are honored to be able to support these strong, resilient artists by providing an outlet for them to share their journey with the community. This year’s theme, “I ask”, asks artists to consider the following in their work: “Have you ever thought about what you would say to the person who sexually assaulted you? What would you want your loved ones to know? What would you want to remind yourself?”
Refreshments and hors d’oeuvres will be served. The whole family is welcome. Please know that this is the first chance that some of our artists have had the opportunity to publicly show their work and talk about their story. We ask everyone to show only love, respect, and compassion. Together, as a community, we can help survivors to know that they are heard, believed, and supported.
*Art submissions due by April 3rd. Please contact Glady Larsen at firstname.lastname@example.org for submission details.
