Important updated guidelines for submitting your work to SAF



Dedicated to encourage healing through the arts, Survivors Art Foundation is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization committed to empowering trauma survivors with effective expressive outlets via internet art gallery, outreach programs, national exhibitions, publications and development of employment skills

Our goals are to provide entertainment, education, and exposure to the arts. We endeavor to raise public awareness through the arts: eradicating abuse and creating an atmosphere of acceptance for survivors with disabilities. Mainstreaming trauma survivors with physical and mental disabilities into the arts.

SAF has participants from 20 countries and 48 states, crossing all cultures, genders, ages and religions. They represent traditional and exploratory disciplines of the visual, literary and performing arts arenas. They are survivors, working through their personal journeys which span physical and domestic violence, rape, war-related trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, AIDS, cancer, MS, mental illness, and other disabilities.

It is our mission to enable the survivor/artists to display and market their works to give them recognition, hope and direction by implementing this innovative approach to healing.

SAF Artists on the Web
SAF is not currently accepting individual art submissions; however, we maintain a large and regularly-updated list of SAF participating survivor artists' websites featuring their various art forms. To become a participating artist, please contact us.
