IMAGINE .. a world without violence.
It Takes a Community: Transforming Violence II ends on Saturday, October 24th with a Closing Reception Coffeehouse from 4-7pm featuring performances by local musicians and poets. Presented in partnership with the Family Violence Project of Augusta, this event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served, including coffee compliments of Hallowell’s own Boynton’s Market.
Using the power of art, Transforming Violence II voices a collective rejection of the use of domestic violence to control and manipulate others, and challenges our society’s overall acceptance of violence.
Transforming Violence II was also supported by Harlow Gallery season sponsors: The Bank of Maine, Capitol Dental Care, Current Media,Dead River Company, the City of Hallowell, the Jennings Family of Hallowell, Kennebec Savings Bank, Scrummy Afters Candy Shoppe, the Vallee Brothers, Chris & Ray Vallee, and by grant funding from the Quimby Family Foundation.
“It Takes a Community: Transforming Violence II” and related events have been funded in part by a grant from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, and by a grant from the Kay E. Dopp Fund of the Maine Community Foundation.
