Project Sankalp

An Art Competition for DV Awareness

Note: We are extending the due date for submissions through Jan. 15, 2021.

Domestic violence is disrupting the lives of women and children in our community, creating lifelong insecurities, loss of identities, and adverse childhood experiences.

Take a sankalp [pledge] to end the cycle and create a safer world for all!

Use your creativity to spread awareness – Let your art speak!

Create an artwork that reflects Domestic or Intimate Partner Violence/Abuse. The following phrases may be an inspiration: Violence has become a culture. Pledge to CHANGE the culture. Silence will not PROTECT you.
