Call for art/writing submissions

Daydreamz Project is partnering with several local entities to display artistic expressions that promote healing of domestic violence, sexual assault and dating.

Those who want to take part are encouraged to submit poetry, prose, drawings, paintings or decorations of any type (which can be anonymous). These will then be placed on posters and displayed at various galleries and venues throughout Haywood County during the month of October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The deadline for the “Ripples of Hope” collaboration is Oct. 1.

The teardrop blanks can be picked up from Daydreamz Project, by calling 828.476.4231 or at Earthworks Frame Gallery on 21 North Main Street in Waynesville or at the REACH of Haywood office on 1085 North Main Street in Waynesville. Earthworks Frame Gallery is donating the teardrop blanks.
