A total of 10 artists will be select­ed for the art show. Artists can sub­mit up to four pieces of art­work. Entries to the art show will be select­ed by a pan­el of per­sons with­in the recov­ery community.

We are look­ing for visu­al art such as illus­tra­tion, paint­ing, print, graph­ic design, and photography.

We val­ue inclu­siv­i­ty and all are wel­comed to apply.
