I have a few friends here who are very good artists, and I wish they would share more of their work. It is possible to add images to posts in some of the forums. Perhaps the poetry forum could be extended, as Andrei suggested, to 'Art and Poetry', and people could share their art in links there.

Hello all,

It seems that there is a definite lack of available graphic arts type works aimed at educating and inspiring male survivors of sexual abuse.

This could be an area where we as male survivors could fill a definite need as we have people writing to us asking where to find it.

I'm talking about posters, postcards, slogans with pictures, bumperstickers etc.

Would there be interest in helping to create such things in order to be of service and contribute to spreading the message of hope and recovery to male survivors?

I've made a couple of basic poster type things with some photos and good old Adobe PhotoElements.

I think it could be the sort of thing we could all try our hand at, and could be a great way to express ourselves and help others too.

Let me know what you all think.
Maybe I'll link to the material I've made the last couple of days.

Thanks all,

Regards,

Brothers,

When I was an abused kid one thing that kept me alive was my ability to escape into great literature and poetry, and it was then that I discovered my passion for poetry. It has always helped me a lot.

I am sure the same applies to survivors who are artists, and I really agree with what Eddie says about the connection with self-esteem. A poem or piece of art expresses who we are, how we feel and what the world means to us, and it's a tangible proof that, despite how we feel about ourselves, we really are worthwhile and loveable.

I think an art forum would be a great idea. It seems to me that it should be separate from the poetry forum. Poetry, art and survivor stories, for example, are all different things.

Love to all,
Larry

Kurt,

There is an images forum, but it's on the members' side. Perhaps you could speak to Scotty Todd about this.

Much love,
Larry
