Shelter Art Project: Unleash Your Creativity
Art is a medium of expression and can become your voice when the oppressors think you have been silenced. Violence, whether it is domestic or sexual, takes away a lot from an individual. While it leaves scars, there is healing too, though it may take its own course and time for each individual.
This art project is an effort by SEWA-AIFW and Violence Free Minnesota to let the world see through your art that despite the violence meted out to you, you are not only a survivor but a victor who has transitioned, triumphed, and won over your difficulties!
We are partnered with Violence Free Minnesota to hold this contest with several women’s shelters around Minnesota.
SEWA-AIFW will reserve the right to utilize your submission, for SEWA purposes only, including but not limited to online, in print, and for marketing and/or fundraising purposes.
