(prHWY.com) April 29, 2012 - San Francisco, CA -- A Little Bird Told Me... Communicating Street Harassment Concepts through the Arts will take place at SomArts Cultural Center in San Francisco between August 1st and 31st, 2012. The event will facilitate anti-street harassment action through two primary components: the gallery show (illustrating street harassment's impact in various districts/cultural communities of San Francisco), and think-tank action (pinpointing concrete next steps, using the arts, to create culturally appropriate street harassment solutions in SF). VoiceTool will also derive logo ideas from selected works for future anti-street harassment projects.
At the date of this press release, Sarah Harper, Director of VoiceTool Productions, said: "The goal of the event is to raise awareness through the arts, prompting a culture shift, while promoting local artists. With art as our communication medium, we can reach so many people. We're looking for extremely innovative artists who want to merge their creative gifts with activism."
Think tank participants will gain networking, business promotion, and future involvement opportunities. Artists whose work is displayed will also gain all but the gallery cut of their art's sales and exposure through SomArt's gallery space, website, Flickr, and Twitter, Stop Street Harassment's website, and VoiceTool Productions' website.
