Violence Transformed: An Exhibition of Visual and Performing Arts is embarking on a third year of marking and celebrating the power of art, artists and art-making to confront, challenge and mediate violence. From shrines to peace gardens, murals to performance art, quilts to video installations, Massachusetts communities are remarkably creative in using art to express collective horror, commemorate victims, foster healing and imagine alternatives.
As we begin planning for our 2009 event, we seek a volunteer fundraiser to gain the support of a few corporate sponsors. Given the growth of the program and the fact that non-profit and individual donors are limited in what they can give, gaining corporate sponsorships will be important as we move forward.
Violence Transformed 2008 was co-sponsored by the Cambridge Health Alliance Victims of Violence Program, the Massachusetts Office for Victim Assistance, the Artists Foundation, the Juvenile Justice and Youth Advocacy Program of Wheelock College, the Cloud Foundation, the Fine and Performing Arts Center of Roxbury Community College, the Institute for Art and Civic Enagagement of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, and the Museum of the National Center of African American Artists. This unique week is a gift to the participants and our community.
