Community Art Exhibition
April 4-26, 2016
Art for Social Change
A World Without Abuse is a community arts exhibition with roots in social justice. Its purpose is to engage community members in recognizing the interrelated structure of our society, specifically regarding child abuse. All members of society contribute to the systems, social norms, and individual behaviors that, held together, shape our world. Creating a safe community for everyone – including all children, tweens, and teens – starts with a shared vision of a world without abuse. By helping to co-create this vision, everyone can actively expand our region’s circle of protection.
