Reclaiming Your Space Art Contest – All Month
Calling all artists! In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, SASS is hosting an art contest, with the theme “Reclaiming Your Space.”
After surviving a traumatic event, and especially after surviving sexual violence, many of us struggle to feel safe, comfortable, and empowered in our homes, relationships, and communities. SASS believes that everyone deserves to feel like they have power and control over their space, be it physically or emotionally. Sometimes, that means we have to reclaim it. So, SASS is asking our community, “What does it mean to ‘Reclaim Your Space’ after surviving sexual violence?”
Entry Rules and Guidelines:
Step 1 – Follow our Instagram accounts: @sexualassaultsupportservices and @sass_esp
Step 2 – Submit your artwork/photography
Step 3 – Have your friends and family like your submission on our IG page during voting week (April 17 – April 24)
*Judging is based on the number of likes your submission gets on your Instagram social media page. Each submission will be posted on our IG separately. The winners will be announced on Tuesday, April 25th on our Instagram account @sexualassaultsupportservices. First place winner will receive a special prize!
