Creativity for a Cause

A portion of the event includes Creativity for a Cause, which enlists the contributions of UWF students/faculty/staff to create, perform, and/or present works of art relevant to the central topic. We accept submissions and display works from participants across various departments and majors. Submissions can be spoken word, poetry, digital art, song, dance and/or any other forms of art!

The Clothesline Project

The Clothesline Project raises awareness about assault and abuse by allowing participants to design t-shirts to display on campus to honor survivors and victims.
