As individuals and societies, we witness injustices almost everyday. They materialize in different ways. Sometimes they are public and sometimes they are personal. We may feel traumatized by some, unable to verbalize our pain or our anger or we may feel empowered by others, prompting us to scream out and confront the source. Often times it feels like an avalanche of news lands on our screens or in our ears repetitively. It can be something about our current political status or it can be an injustice at work or within a personal relationship. No matter the injustice, it is upsetting and unsettling, traumatizing. Through psychology we have learned that the healthiest way to manage a traumatic experience is to share it with others, to exteriorize it somehow, to bear witness.
Continuing with our annual theme of Art of Protest, we invite you to submit artwork bearing witness to a situation you feel is important to highlight. We invite you to speak to us about what upsets you, what needs changing, what demands attention so that we may acknowledge it and help you process it.
