New in 2022 Trauma Art Exhibit

We are incredibly excited for our 2022 season. That being said, we are to begin announcing changes in the coming weeks. This is VERY enthusiastic growth and development, of the Trauma Art Exhibit that we are looking for others to come alongside. This will include a name change to Trauma Art Ministries, entire re-vamp of logo and branding colors, and a new website. Our volunteers are dedicated to do their best to keep everyone up to date. We will do our absolute BEST to keep on track to making the upcoming Trauma Art Exhibit on October 1, 2022 deeper, stronger, and containing healing for ALL.

Trauma Art Ministries is open to artists of all ages and stages through a variety of disciplines including, but not limited to, the visual arts, expressions of music, dance, and spoken word, as well as the dramatic arts. In collaboration with community organizations and in reflection of Elohim, God as Creator, artists are connected to a variety of resources and outlets for healing and education on the effects of trauma.

About the 2021 Trauma Art Exhibit


Give VOICE to the oppressed through the arts to become closer to Christ and find healing from trauma.

Trauma Art Exhibit: VOICE 2021, was organized by Enduring Hope Counseling and a committee of hard-working individuals whose mission is to provide an artistic outlet for the Pittsburgh community. It is our desire through VOICE 2021 to promote excellence in the arts as a reflection of our Creator. The art exhibition aims to give people the opportunity to express their pain, memorialize their healing and redemption, connect with other artists, and inform the community about trauma and its effects. This committee has been established because the community has witnessed helplessly unanswered racial violence, domestic violence, sexual abuse, trafficking, verbal abuse, and oppression which are all causes of trauma. Lead by Doreen Weiss, LPC the founder of Enduring Hope Counseling has served Christ through biblical counseling women suffering from domestic violence and relationship for nearly two decades.
