For survivors, by survivors.

If you have not yet, please take a moment to review The Firecracker Foundation's Guide to the Gallery. This survey is for survivors interested in working with artists and/or artists who are survivors interested in creating a piece of self-portraiture about their own experience of child sexual trauma. The deadline for completing this application for inclusion in the Soulfire Gala of 2019 is June 30, 2019.

If you are an artist who is paired with an artist for the purpose of creating a piece of art based on their story, you do not need to complete this survey.
