Every cent we raise goes directly into our year-round programming for survivors.  This includes our Awakened Artists grant program, an on-line literary magazine, rotating exhibits, musical, dance, and theatrical performances, live painting events, workshops, and much more. We cannot grow without your help. Your donation will have a direct impact on someone’s life, help our tiny staff of truth tellers, and support our mission: to make visible the artistic expression of survivors.  Thank you for your generosity.


This year our gallery and office spaces are also going through construction and remodeling, thanks to Designs for Dignity, which means we’ve had to go through and purge to make way for the remodel. This makes it the perfect season to give items for Awakenings. Please email us if you would like to donate items, money or a gift card towards these items at
