The Lost Words Survivor Art Showcase

Join Safe Harbor Crisis Center and Bountiful Davis Arts Center to celebrate the strength of sexual assault survivors and share in the healing power of art. The Lost Words Survivor Art Showcase will feature powerful, original artwork created by survivors of sexual violence. The creative arts allow a space for emotional expression that can be incredibly healing for survivors as they work to move beyond the trauma of their past abuse. We are honored to be able to support these strong, resilient artists by providing an outlet for them to share their journey.

This years theme, Lost Words, asks artists to consider the following in their work: Have you ever thought about what you would say to the person who sexually assaulted you? What would you want your loved ones to know? What would you want to remind yourself?

Refreshments and hors d'oeuvres will be served. The whole family is welcome. Please know that this is the first chance that some of our artists have had the opportunity to publicly show their work and talk about their story. We ask everyone to show only love, respect, and compassion. Together, as a community, we can help survivors to know that they are heard, believed, and supported.

Artwork submissions are due by April 5th. To sign up and participate, please contact Alana Cloud at alana@safeharborhope.org.

This event is part of the Davis County Sexual Assault Awareness Month (#SAAM) campaign, hosted by Safe Harbor Crisis Center. Follow Safe Harbor Crisis Center on Facebook for #SAAM updates and resources throughout April.
