Call for Submissions


Shattered Canvas, Inc. received a grant from American Citizens for Italian Matters and Constellation Energy to showcase the Face of the Survivor of Childhood Sexual Abuse and Mental Health.

Shattered Canvas will display, art, drawings, paintings, expressive writing, poems, journal pages, and photos submitted by survivors, spouses, family, friends, children, or mental health professionals that demonstrate the face, emotion, struggle, pain, reaching for help, happiness, solitude, peace, etc. that represent the survivor of childhood sexual abuse.

This display will be moved to various locations, posted on the Shattered Canvas website, and FB page so that the public can view the invisibility of sexual abuse and mental health.

Shattered Canvas wants to flood the post office with your expressions that demonstrate your journey or commitment to these issues. We need to ROCK the world with this project and get media attention, while we are at it, why not try for so many submissions that we can start our own museum!
