Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center

SAPAC's Survivor Empowerment & Ally Support (SEAS) Volunteer Program is now accepting submissions for the 13th annual rEVOLUTION: Making Art for Change art show!

We welcome all UM affiliated artists to submit their artworks to be displayed in our art show in rEVOLUTION: Making Art for Change. Art of any medium is welcome, including, but not limited to: painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, spoken word, and poetry. The themes of our show are gender, sexism, sexual violence, empowerment, and healing. The topic of sexual violence can include sexual assault, intimate partner violence, sexual and gender-based harassment, and stalking.

Healing is a process that works in different ways for different people. Creating and displaying art can prove very helpful as a way to promote healing. Artistic expression provides a medium to bring up and process emotions and experiences in a way that can be difficult to discuss otherwise.

Our goal with this event is to create and engage in a supportive community space for survivors where UM student allies and survivors will build empathy and an understanding of sexual violence and healing through the unique creative expression of survivor experiences and perspectives.

Please e-mail submissions to artrevolution@umich.edu and fill out this form (https://goo.gl/forms/CeVUxF7iRs9fQbPy1) by March 12th! If your work is accepted, it will be displayed at the opening night of the art show the evening of April 6th. Opening night will be held from 6-9 PM in the East and West Conference Rooms on the fourth floor of Rackham Graduate School.
