Arts to End Violence is a festival and contest that brings together some of the many artistic expressions of peace in our neighborhood and beyond in order to spread the message of nonviolence. We are getting excited for our fourth annual Arts to End Violence contest! The first deadline for our annual arts contest is April 10th, 2014. This year we are accepting only 2-D art, and we welcome all artists to submit their work that addresses the issue of violence. To submit to our contest or for more information, contact Marlies Talay at or at 718-773-6886.
