Call for artists: visual arts, dance, poetry, song/composition. Anyone that would like to participate can bring their unique genre and style to touch our community.
The last few years some of the pieces that brought in the highest bids were smaller pieces, 3-D art such as sculpture and screen printed boxes.
We are looking for any type of creative expression! It can be:
wearable (jewelry, shirts, hats ect…),
functional (trinket boxes, instruments ect..),
or more traditional wall art (canvas, photography, collage ect…)
A Big Thank You to all of our local 2018 artists who donated their time for this project and the survivors willing to share their stories.
Sponsorship Opportunities for the 2019 Show Please call 970-264-1129 or email ashley@riseaboveviolence for more information Sponsorship allows for us to bring a beautiful show so that all ticket sales go straight back to the victims and survivors who utilize services provide by Rise.
In order to honor every survivor and their story, give them safe and confidential ways to share and to make this project meaningful to them and their healing.
Survivors are given the option to more fully share their stories: THAT is what you will see here!
Not every survivor is ready to share this openly and we honor their need and process to heal on their own terms, for those that asked to share, here are their stories
