Awareness 2012  is a collaborative mixed media exhibit developed by  Art Against Oppression  to raise awareness about social injustice. The exhibit also provides information about entities already working to bring change to these issues. Awareness 2012 focuses on human trafficking, child soldiers and government oppression and is traveling to various states through the summer.

Art Against Oppression is a cooperative of artists who are working together to use their talents to impact the world in a positive manner. Their mission isn't just to do good art; they want to do art that does good.

Their art is committed to raising awareness of injustice. The works are powerful statements made in multiple mediums, including visual, performance, music and written art forms, all focusing on these important issues.

The exhibit will be hosted by Harvest Christian Fellowship 1005 S. Washington in Plainville on June 23 and 24 at 1005 S. Washington. There is no fee for admission.

The exhibit opens at 6 p.m. June 23 for viewing, and a concert begins at 7 p.m. with Ramblin' Pan and The Original Intent.

The artists will be in service with Harvest Christian Fellowship at 10 a.m. June 24. Artists will be available for questions.
