I am elated to announce that our art auction and fundraiser, Drawing the Connections, will be happening in June!
Drawing the Connections highlights the intersections between art, breast cancer, and social justice. Last year, this celebration of activism and creativity raised crucial funds for our work and engaged our community of activists in moving and inspiring ways. With your support, we exceeded our $15,000 goal.
We hope you’ll join us again this year by submitting a piece for the auction!
We know that the Breast Cancer Action community is filled with incredible artists and activists. We encourage submissions from artists who feel aligned with our values and are interested in addressing issues of breast cancer, womxn’s rights, health justice, and other social justice causes. We welcome art that explores those themes, however it is not required for you to stick to those themes or express them in a literal way. If you feel inspired to submit a piece, please do!
Additionally, if you know of an artist that you feel would be a great fit, please forward this email to them or add them to the submission form and we will follow up with them.
This fundraiser will reflect our core values. BCAction is not your average breast cancer organization, and for three decades we have taken on this disease by addressing the root causes of health inequalities.
The deadline to submit a piece of art is Thursday, March 31, 2022. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have questions about this fundraiser or our submission guidelines.
