October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and we want your support! Homesafe, Inc., Ashtabula County’s Domestic Violence Shelter will be holding its annual “Walk Against Abuse” at the Kent State University-Ashtabula campus. With recent national domestic violence incidents spotlighting the problem, let’s show residents of Ashtabula County who have been victims or may still be struggling to disclose the violence that they are not alone. Come walk the grounds of Kent to show there is no place for violence in our communities, stand together, and walk to end domestic violence. Help us spread the word about the serious issues of domestic violence by participating in this event. Help Homesafe spread the word; join us in our walk Wednesday, October 8, 5:30 pm at Kent State in support of survivors. It is important for survivors to know that the abuse is not their fault, and they are not alone. Help is available for those who suffer from domestic violence, in Ashtabula County call Homesafe, Inc. 24/7 at 992-2727. In 2014, domestic violence remains a social epidemic. Domestic violence affects millions of families every year. For many years, violence against women has been seen as a “women’s issue” but it is a human issue. Everyone has a responsibility to talk about serious, sensitive issues and set examples by the lives we lead. It is important to recognize that actions and decisions we make every day and the words we use have the power to help shape the way domestic violence is viewed and treated by society. One out of four women are beaten or raped by a partner during her lifetime. Three women are killed by a current or former intimate partner each day in the United States. Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women—more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined. 1 in 5 teenage girls who have been in a relationship said a boyfriend threatened violence or self-harm if presented with a breakup. High-profile cases of domestic violence will attract headlines, but thousands of people experience domestic abuse every day. They come from all walks of life. Domestic violence is a pervasive, life-threatening crime that affects millions of individuals across the United States regardless of age, economic status, race, religion, or education.
Homesafe, Inc. is a private, not-for-profit community agency, committed to breaking the cycle of violence in Ashtabula County and its surrounding areas through the provision of emergency and non-emergency services. Our mission is to assure greater awareness of the problems of domestic violence and abuse through the education and empowerment of individuals, families, and the community. Please join us at Kent State Ashtabula, walk to raise awareness on Wednesday, October 8 at 5:30pm in the Main Hall Auditorium. In the event of rain we will walk inside the Main Hall.

In an effort to bring awareness to the ever-growing link between medicine and the arts, Cleveland-based, Community Partnership for Arts and Culture (CPAC) will be hosting its first ever Creative Minds in Medicine Conference at the new Cleveland Global Center for Health Innovation. This conference, which takes place on October 29th and 30th will feature a variety of keynote speakers who will focus on the increasing overlap and collaboration between the arts and medicine locally and nationally.
The two-day event will be filled with diverse discussions led by local and national experts on a variety of arts and healthcare projects, practices, research and trends. Keynote speakers include:
Gary Glazner, the founder and executive director of the Alzheimer’s Poetry Project. Glazner will speak on Dementia Arts: Celebrating Creativity in Elder Care. In his fun, high-energy talk, Glazner will relate simple techniques to create high-quality arts programs, build communication skills and help increase the ability to connect with people living with memory loss.
Sunil Iyengar, the research and analysis director of the National Endowment for the Arts. Iyengar will discuss in his Research Agenda for the Arts and Health session, the efforts of leading a federal taskforce to encourage more extensive research on how the arts help people reach their full potential at all stages of life.
Mel Chin, the lead behind Operation Paydirt. This project is a national movement that is designed to support awareness and solutions to lead contamination and address childhood lead poisoning. As part of this seminar, Chin will demonstrate how arts and culture plays a key role in raising awareness about pressing community health issues.
Nadine Licostie, the director or “The Last One”, a feature-length documentary that summarizes the controversial battle and stigma surrounding the AIDS virus and the gay community. This film frames the quest to sew the last panel into the Quilt, representing the end of AIDS. She will discuss her filmmaking journey, uncovering the birth of the AIDS Memorial Quilt and its subsequent impact on politics, science and the media, as it has become the largest ongoing community art project in the world.
In addition to the keynote speakers, attendees will have the chance to experience firsthand the healing power of the arts through demonstrations and activities, and help shape how the arts and healthcare dialogue in Greater Cleveland moves forward. Specifically, the conference agenda also includes several panel discussions on important topics, including: Arts and Health Economy, Arts & Culture in a Changing Healthcare Landscape, and Arts, Culture & Social Change: Fostering Healthy Communities to name a few.
“Northeast Ohio is at the national forefront of a remarkable new dynamic: the growing intersection of our world-class healthcare sector and our world-class arts and culture sector. The interplay between these industries is sparking new ideas, new programs, new products and services. CPAC showed in our recent research report that this intersection is evolving and expanding rapidly. The Creative Minds in Medicine Conference is a timely opportunity to bring together arts and healthcare experts from around the region and nation to identify ways to support and enhance the critical collaboration taking place every day between our arts and healthcare industries,” said Tom Chema, Board Chair of CPAC.
Those interested in attending the conference can register at CultureForward.org. Registration includes admission for both days of the conference, breakfast and lunch for both days of the conference, a reception, and valet parking. For more information, interviews or hi-res photography, please contact Becki Silverstein at Becki@rebeccaadele.com or via phone at 440-227-8794.
The Sweet Spot, a local gelato shop in Lakewood, Ohio, is known for serving delicious gelato daily to its loyal customers. But what many don’t know is that beyond the gelato, the shop and its owners are advocates of supporting the arts. This upcoming fall, the shop will be partnering with the Lakewood High School to make a difference in its own community.
From October 6th through November 2nd, The Sweet Spot will be partnering with high school students from Lakewood High School to showcase their artwork along the shop’s walls and raise money for the school’s art department.
Throughout September, students will choose their favorite location in Lakewood to be the feature of their art piece. Then, during the month of October, The Sweet Spot will host a silent auction for each piece. The best part? One hundred percent of the profits will then be donated directly back to the Lakewood Arts Department.
“The Sweet Spot is a family owned business, and shopping local and supporting our local community is so important to us and what we stand for,” said Celeste Blau, co-owner of The Sweet Spot. “We constantly support local artists by showcasing their work on our walls, much of which is for sale. We thought, what better way to give back directly to our community then to support the students in our own community?” continued Blau.
It’s no secret that arts programs throughout the country are severely under-funded. What a lot of people don’t realize is the impact that these programs can have on students. In fact, according to the National Endowments for the Arts, students who study art are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement.
“The arts make a big difference in our students lives,” said Amy Sedlack, Lakewood High School Art Teacher. “This is a great opportunity for our students to express themselves, see something they’ve worked hard on receive recognition, and support our school system. We are very fortunate to be a part of this event. We couldn’t have done it without the support of The Sweet Spot.”
When: Saturday, October 25, 2014 from 6:00-11:00 p.m. Where: LaMalfa Centre (5783 Heisley Rd, Mentor OH)
