The mission of the Awakenings is to Make Visible the artistic expression of survivors of sexual violence.
Awakenings is home to a multi-media art gallery featuring the artistic expressions of rape and sexual abuse survivors. By showcasing stories of survival, we are helping survivors find peace while simultaneously challenging the cultural taboos that prevent an honest discussion of sexual violence.
We shine a light on the truth. We don’t mince words. We are up front and dead center about the prevalence of rape and sexual abuse in our culture. We are here to tell the truth and share the stories of the survivors brave enough to tell them.
If you are an artist, writer, musician, or any other type of creative truth-teller, you can submit examples of your work online for inclusion in our exhibits, our magazine, and our events.
Please note: The Nightingale is currently closed for submissions. We plan to reopen for submissions in an ongoing basis in the future. Thanks for your interest and please check out our other calls in the meantime!
