Volunteer Advocate Training
The Violence Prevention Center (VPC) is proud to announce its second Art of Healing event to be held in January 2021 at the Johnson Heritage Post art gallery in Grand Marais, MN. Our first Art of Healing event could not have been possible without so many artists generously sharing their artwork and a part of their story with our community.
If you or someone you know has been affected by or subjected to domestic or sexual violence and has used art as a means to respond, explore, express, or heal from their experiences, we are inviting you to share your work at The Art of Healing art exhibit.
The Art of Healing is an important event in the VPC’s ongoing mission to serve individuals and families in Cook County affected by domestic and sexual violence and to act as a catalyst in building healthy relationships and developing a community where violence is not tolerated. We thank those who have and will fulfill this mission through art.
As with our first event, art can be submitted anonymously by either a survivor of domestic and/or sexual violence or by those who support survivors. There is also an option to sell art at this event. We are accepting a wide variety of art such as painting, drawing, sculpture, wood carving, jewelry, textiles, weaving, photography, written, and more.
Please share this opportunity with anyone you think may be interested. Art should be submitted by December 29th, 2020. Contact the VPC for more info at or by calling 218-387-1262 or 218-387-1237.
