Ends on

In acknowledgement of January as 'Stalking Awareness Month', The Power of One office is seeking student's art that brings to light the story of survivors or highlights the true effects of stalking i.e.: emotional disarray, insomnia, paranoia, dangers, control, surveillance, and survivorship. The media glamorizes and romanticizes stalking behaviors as trivial acts of love. This leaves ambiguity and feelings of uncertainty surrounding a stalking survivor's testimony and initiative for reaching out. Original art should be centered around empowerment of survivors, trusting one's instincts, and the long-term effects of Stalking as a serious crime.
