Please Donate to Violence Transformed and Support Our Mission!

Violence Transformed, an arts and social justice initiative of the Public Health Advocacy Institute, documents the power of art, artists and artmaking to effect positive social change and transform our environments. Drawing upon the creative energies of artists throughout New England, we celebrate the many ways in which our diverse communities harness art’s potential to confront, address and imagine healing alternatives to the violence taking place in our homes, on our streets, in our communities and among marginalized and vulnerable populations throughout the world.

Your donations provide critical support to this endeavor, to our phenomenal staff, and to the socially engaged artists, curators and community partners who contribute so much to the work we do and to all of the communities we serve.

Please give generously! Your help really does make a difference!

In 2015 Violence Transformed received a Humanism in Medicine Award from The Arnold P. Gold Foundation, providing support for a unique series of artist-led workshops for healthcare providers interested in better understanding the ways in which art, artists and art-making contribute to the health and well-being of individuals, families and entire communities. Six outstanding workshops were held. A companion booklet was produced to document the workshops, and to serve as a resource for successful models of creative interventions for healthcare practioners working with populations impacted by violence and trauma.
