Safe Today | Strong Tomorrow: An open call to photographers and writers

Safe Today | Strong Tomorrow is a fundraising project of PEI Family Violence Prevention Services. We are seeking artists and creative writers to contribute to a collective book of thoughtful photographs and writings that celebrate resilience, love, and the human spirit. The book will showcase an uplifting look at healthy relationships, the beauty and strength of individuals who have experienced family violence, and the capability of a community to show kindness and support – especially in times of need.

Photographers and writers are invited to submit an image (min 300 dpi), poem (max 35 lines incl. stanza breaks), or prose (max 300 words) they feel is aligned with the themes of this book. What does a healthy relationship look like to you? What symbolizes strength to you? Do you have a story that illustrates triumph over adversity, or about an act of kindness and support? We welcome thought-provoking and creative ways to portray these themes and will enlist a volunteer committee of artists, art enthusiasts, writers and editors to help curate this project.

All proceeds from Safe Today | Strong Tomorrow will help offset the expenses associated with the programming of PEI Family Violence Preventions Services including emergency shelter, community outreach services, second stage housing, youth programming and more.

Extended submission deadline! For information or to download the application form visit www.fvps.ca or contact Lindsay at 902-894-3354 ext 222 or lindsay@fvps.ca.
