SaveArtSpace: Gender Based Violence public art on billboards in Seattle, WA

SaveArtSpace has partnered with Take Heart You Are Not Alone and curator David F. Martin to assemble a visual framework that will draw awareness to the issue of domestic violence. Their goal is to use artwork to capture the attention of the public in order to provide them with contact information for much needed community resources available to victims and survivors.

Take Heart You Are Not Alone is seeking artists to create artwork that communicates the issues faced by victims and survivors of domestic violence. Artwork that can illustrate the impact domestic violence has on individuals, families, and communities including LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, Indigenous and immigrant communities. It is their desire that the artwork can also provide hope and healing to victims and survivors.

They feel that art can provide a means to explore community responses and showcase how people help address and hopefully prevent domestic violence in their families and neighborhoods. This critical support provides survivors a path to navigating their healing journeys.

Artists of all ages and talent levels are invited to submit their artwork between July 12 and August 23, 2021. They particularly encourage and welcome submissions from artists who are themselves victims or survivors of domestic violence and/or are members of the LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, Indigenous and immigrant communities. This is your opportunity to have your artwork on ad space in the greater Seattle, WA area.

PLEASE NOTE: SaveArtSpace has graciously agreed to allow Take Heart You Are Not Alone to include a short message alongside the artwork selected for the billboards. The message will read something to the effect of “If you are a victim of Domestic Violence and need help call 1800.” The purpose of this message it to provide victims immediate information on how they can obtain help and resources in the community.
