THE ARTIST+CLIENT PROCESS:
Chosen Storytellers are paired up with a former HRI Client. There is an initial meeting between the two, where the client story is shared and the artist suggests a few ideas as to how the piece may morph. We encourage our client/storyteller pairs to continue to meet throughout the development of the art.
This year the first meeting took place at the HRI offices on Aug. 25th and 26th.
“Then they put this red oil on my forehead and the man started walking towards me. He had a piece of broken glass in his hand. I tried to run but they held me. They had done this to another girl at a ceremony. I remember her screams.”
Rock Your HeART Out is a Concert & Art auction, benefiting Human Rights Initiative of North Texas. Art inspired by our Clients and Storyteller will be auctioned off at this event. All monies will go towards HRI.
Project Completion Deadline: September 30, 2018
Rock Your HeART Out event: October 27th, 2018
