After discussing this with my staff, I’ve decided to create a Vent Art folder, a place for our deviants to vent their emotions and express themselves.
I have thought about including a folder for art that lets survivors vent their emotions. As a survivor myself, I tend to express my pain through my art as well.
Our group had, once upon a time, accepted submissions like this but due to the fact that some submissions were off-topic and spammed the group with unrelated material, we've been stricter on what submissions to accept regarding these themes.
Likewise, the deviation in question does not specifically have to state sexual abuse explicitly, but as long as you include how your artwork's theme relates to supporting our group's goals in the Artist Comments, such as, ''My art expresses my emotions and what happened to me'', that's totally acceptable. Or if the theme of your piece is clear.
So keep that in mind and please don’t abuse this opportunity to spam the group with art that has nothing to do with abuse, otherwise your submission will be declined.
Vent art is meant to be an outlet to express your pain and experiences, since some people are not comfortable with explicitly explaining their experiences. Again, as long as a disclaimer is added to your piece and how it relates to the group, then your submission will be accepted.
Please consider the following submissions as examples of ''vent art'' wingsofcrippledglass.deviantar…
