A Healing Touch: Digital offering of Peace to Women Survivors

Matthew Watkins

A healing touch

Artist Mia Robinson is extending “touch” beyond our devices and taking it into the lives of abused women through “A Healing Touch: Digital offering of Peace to Women Survivors“. The international mobile digital art exhibition features works by 25 fingerpainters, all created to inspire hope and healing in women survivors (and victims) of violence, abuse and oppression. The show and fundraiser for Ocean Ana Rising Inc, a non-profit organization empowering women through the arts, runs from August 20th through September 4th, 2010 and includes a private opening reception (August 20th, 6:30-8:00pm) and Outreach workshop, “When Left to Your Own Devices” where Mia will be teaching 15 teenaged girls how to paint on iPads and iPhones.

To raise awareness about the global issue of violence against women and the upcoming exhibition, Mia will be blogging and tweeting facts and statistics daily on her website. You can follow her on twitter.

To purchase tickets to the opening reception or to find out how you can support and/or participate (there is a private flickr group for additional artists who’d like to contribute eir own offerings–the group will be featured as a slideshow during the exhibition), visit www.mrobart.com/ahealingtouch.
