what is END WORKS?

END WORKS

Art gives voice to and increases awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault
- Engage and move the conversation forward...

End Works is a collaboration between the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut and the Women's Center of Greater Danbury, Inc. (WCOGD). The goal is to provide opportunity for artists to show work that gives voice to, and increases awareness of, domestic violence and sexual assault. We are looking for art that will engage and move the community forward in a meaningful discussion.

End Works is inspired by the WCOGD's vision to ". . . end the violence against women, men and children, to foster equality and empowerment for all." As such, the relationship between artist and audience is distinctive, creating an artist-led encounter between those whose lives have been touched by domestic violence and sexual assault, and those who have not. We would like the artist to explore this vision and what it means to them personally, and for our nation at large; to create common ground, explore issues related to domestic violence and sexual assault that inspire truth and hope, and deepen our dialogue.

The Cultural Alliance is seeking art entries for End Works 2017. A project that will feature 2 dimensional art of all mediums for participation in an exhibit of the same name, and auction to benefit the WCOGD. This is an opportunity for all artists located in Connecticut.
