Synergy and Rhythm: OXFAM/ArtCorps Fundraiser

From Toronto-based, Columbia-born artist Monica Gutierrez

 In El Salvador, one out of every three women is a victim of violence. Young women between the ages of 15 and 29 years are most often targeted, typically by relatives and teachers. Despite growing awareness about the problem of violence against women in Latin America, public policies still lack a gender perspective and police, prosecutors and other authorities continue to use discriminatory terms and practices in cases of murdered women and violence against women.

In response, ArtCorps is initiating a new partnership with Oxfam America and the Gender-based Violence Prevention Campaign in El Salvador. ArtCorps is sending Colombian-born, Toronto-based artist Monica Gutierrez to fill a volunteer position in order to empower communities in building stronger, more peaceful societies by using participatory arts as a strategy for education and engagement. Monica will also strive to perpetuate the use of participatory art as an innovative tool for empowering and educating communities among non-governmental organizations.
