CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Wellbeing is the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy. Wellbeing is an art form, or a journey – it is more than just health care and bubble baths – and it’s something to continually work toward. Wellbeing encompasses being part of a supportive community and that is what CHARG is all about! 

We invite all artists AND non-professional artists who use creative expression to enhance their mental wellness to submit their artwork for our anniversary event. When you submit your application, share a bit about how your artistic and creative process has or can aid in mental wellbeing (optional).

Make an impact as well!
Event proceeds will provide funding for high-impact, life-saving mental health services that empower individuals living with mental illness to take control of their wellbeing. Our programs include individual counseling, outpatient psychiatric services, peer support, skills training and an employment program, recreational activities, medication management,  support monitoring overall health, and a homeless outreach program.

HOW TO APPLY:  Complete this application form, scan and email to events@charg.org. Or, complete the form and mail to:

    We ask all artists to set the price for which they would like to sell their artwork – 50% of the price will be donated to CHARG, and artists will receive the other 50% unless they would like to also donate their half.

  7. Promotion: Artist agrees that CHARG Resource Center may use images of the artwork for marketing and promotional purposes.
