Art for Social Change
This unique community arts exhibition has its 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.
Join the Exhibit
Seasoned artists, novices and “just plain folks” are invited to submit visual artwork of all media and, to align with the theme, explore the following questions and incorporate a circle or circles into the design:
- What does a world without abuse look like to you?
- How can we expand our circle of protection so that child abuse becomes rare and non-recurring in our lifetime?
