We are calling on all members of Edmonton communities to recognize and respond to the astounding rates of sexual violence.

All pieces related to sexual violence are welcome. Artists may choose whether or not to offer their art for sale (provided that a negotiable portion of proceeds is directed to the Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton).

Suggested themes include, but are not limited to: coercion, consent, survivor vs. victim, violation, sexual exploitation, effects of sexual assault, hope after sexual assault, child sexual abuse, sexual harassment, sexual assault and oppression, sexual assault as a hate crime...
