Healing through Art

Healing through Art

Share your art for a chance to be featured!

In times of crisis, artistic expression plays an important part in fostering healing and resiliency — and fueling movements. As we navigate year two of a global pandemic and compounding global crises— let us once again flood World Pulse with our poetry and our paintings, our stories and our songs.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Do you draw or paint? Post images of your art and tell us about it.
  • Are you a poet? Share a poem—or three or four!—with the community. Short form poetry is encouraged.
  • Do you sing, play an instrument, or make music? Upload a video to YouTube and share it here.
  • Do you knit, embroider, or quilt? Share a photo of your crafts and tell us about its history.
  • Are you a photographer? Share your original photos.
  • Do you write fiction? We want to read it!
  • You can also share a story about how you use art in your activism or share about an artist who inspires you.

Select submissions will be eligible for Story Awards, which includes publication and a World Pulse honorarium of $100 US. With your permission, World Pulse may also feature select submissions in World Pulse promotional materials. Those who are selected for publication in World Pulse printed materials will receive an honorarium of $250 US.
