Art of Healing Photo Project 

All survivors are invited to submit photos that represent the healing process. Photos will be showcased in a slideshow at the Art of Healing event. 

Submission instructions:

  • Each week there is a new photo prompt. Submit a digital photo that represents a moment in the healing process (e.g. a picture of bare trees could represent the sadness and exhaustion after the assault). 
  • You're welcome to add a description of the image and how it relates to your healing. 
  • Submit here
