Holding Hands For Social Justice

  In a series of public collaboration art projects, Sarah Jo Pender invites you to join Hands to bring awareness to social and criminal injustices.

Project #1: WHAT IS YOUR STORY? Share part of your life story as told through your hands.

Purpose: To collect pieces of our lives to illustrate the story of common humanity. HANDS will be exhibited to create dialogue about social stigmas and may later be used for an awareness campaign publication.

  1) HOLD OUT YOUR HAND: Photograph, draw, finger paint, photocopy, collage, or outline your hand.

  2) Show you hand performing an action, or Tell a story in words or images connected through your hands. * Submit anonymously if it allows you to share more openly.

  3) Send to: ART FOR HUMANITY
                     P.O. BOX 36244
                     INDIANAPOLIS, IN 46236 USA

  OR  bprosser2025@yahoo.com by 28th October, 2011




  PROJECT #2: THE ART OF HOLDING HANDS. As the creator of HANDS, Sarah has her own story to share. Since 2008, she has been held indefinitely in solitary confinement, and is imprisoned for crimes that another person confessed to committing. Support Sarah's fight for justice!

Purpose: To connect Sarah to the outside world, human to human, one hand at a time.

1) Hold Out Your Hand: Create an image of your hand.

2) Share something about yourself, or Simply send your hand in silent support.

3) Write Sarah on your art to receive her hand in return.

4) Send to ART OF HUMANITY
                  P.O. BOX 36244
                  INDIANAPOLIS, IN 46236 USA

OR  bprosser2025@yahoo.com by 28th October 2011
