CALL TO ARTISTS

Center for Hope, a comprehensive violence intervention and prevention center based in Baltimore, MD, is embarking on an initiative called IMAGINE HOPE to fill our soon-to-be new building with art that brings hope and healing to people of all ages who have experienced trauma. We provide crisis responses and solutions for survivors and caregivers impacted by a variety of traumas, including child abuse, human trafficking and exploitation, domestic and family violence, community violence and elder abuse.

We are seeking artists to create art for our new 32,000 square foot building to help clients move past their trauma and evoke a sense of peace and joy during a difficult time in their lives, with an aim to recover and heal. We want to spotlight artistic diversity and the amazing creative talent in our Greater Baltimore community and beyond. As artists, you especially know how powerful your creations can be for the human spirit. Donating one of your pieces is a meaningful gift to those who can draw strength and joy from your work. Our new building is scheduled to open in March 2022.

About the IMAGINE HOPE Project
As children, teens, families and caregivers walk through our doors, we want them to feel enveloped with a sense of hope, peace and safety. The IMAGINE HOPE project’s goal is to help our clients see that they have a better future and they have the power to make it happen. Art connects mind to body. HOPE and ART are proven to be positive mechanisms for change and predictors for wellbeing. HOPE helps people heal from trauma and abuse and ART can strengthen healing and lift the human spirit.

About Center for Hope
