Call for Submissions!

GIVING VOICES PROJECT is seeking POEMS, SHORT STORIES/PLAYS and MUSIC submissions for THE LANGUAGES OF ABUSE (LOA) in October 2020 and our Springs 2021 WEARABLE ARTS SHOW. The pieces will be brought to life in our theatrical production LOA through vignettes of Spoken Word, Dance, Music, Short Play and Monologues. Our goal is to give the audience an intimate view into the lives of survivors and the effect of abuse and violence.

All pronouns accepted.

Desired message of the submission: A piece of work that shares the inner struggles with their experience, their external struggles with family and friends or the legal system because of the abuse. 

Submission Deadline: Friday, April 3, 2020

Salvage: Wearable Art Show

Salvage: Wearable Art Show

A collaboration with Stetson University students where they will create clothing based off of the stories of survivors of abuse. They will also select the most powerful quotes and screen-print onto t-shirts as a form of Statement Art. This runaway of artistic expression will be set behind music and Spoken Word.

Domestic Abuse is an issue we hear about more than often, but what we don’t hear much about is what happens to the survivors after they have left the situation. Most times they are faced with other issues of homelessness, addiction, mental health or a continued cycle of violence. We never have the opportunity to hear their stories. It is from their stories we can learn how to support them as they rebuild their lives.

Details: 

Thursday, November 16th, 6:30pm at the Artisan Allay Garage, 113 Georgia Ave, Deland FL.
