One in Three: A Call for Action – Call for Artists

Posted in News Release, SACE Events at 4:32 pm by sacetalks

In Canada, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men experience sexual assault in their lifetime.

This is an open call to artists to submit artwork for the upcoming art show and open mic session, One in Three: A Call for Action. This event is on Thursday, April 15th, 2010 and is part of Sexual Assault Awareness Week. We are calling on all members of Edmonton communities to recognize and respond to the astounding rates of sexual violence.

All pieces related to sexual violence are welcome. Artists may choose whether or not to offer their art for sale (provided that a negotiable portion of proceeds is directed to the Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton).

Suggested themes include, but are not limited to: coercion, consent, survivor vs. victim, violation, sexual exploitation, effects of sexual assault, hope after sexual assault, child sexual abuse, sexual harassment, sexual assault and oppression, sexual assault as a hate crime…

Submit your artwork to The Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton. Deadline is April 1st, 2010. With your help, we can work toward ending sexual violence.

For more information, please contact Pragya Sharma at 780 423 4102, or email pragyas@sace.ab.ca.
