The International Domestic Violence Memorial and Educational Gardens Sustainability Project has partnered with the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), A Window Between Worlds, Be A Voice Arts, Northeastern Consulting, LLC., Palace of Glass, and Adrian Fisher Designs in Dorset England to create a Lantern of Hope Memorial and Memorial Gardens that would help commemorate the victims who have been murdered as a result of domestic violence and child abuse. The lantern will consist of four 10’ x 6’ mural mosaics comprised of the artwork from over 240 artist/survivors across the globe who wish to share their experiences through this unique community based art project.
The lantern will become the major component in the Silence Aids Violence a national campaign to raise awareness about domestic violence and raise funds for each of the local hosting communities that would temporarily host the exhibit, prior to being installed in its final location at the Seeds of Change Memorial Gardens which will be constructed while the lantern is on tour.
To read more about the project:
We are looking for 240 people across the globe to express their experiences of childhood abuse, sexual abuse, domestic violence, rape, honor killings, trafficking through art. Please let me know if you are interested in participating or have feedback what you think the main mural mosaic themes should be.
