Established in 2015, the Central Vermont Refugee Action Network, Inc. (CVRAN) is a Board-governed, registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Montpelier and dedicated to making our communities welcoming safe places for New Vermonters from countries around the world to visit, work, and live in.
March Arts Marathon!
Open for writers, artists, and their sponsors to register starting in early January.
We are looking for writers and artists at every level -- brand-new, long established or anything in between -- who, with their supporters, will raise money for the Asylum Seekers Assistance Network (ASAN), a project of CVRAN.
Writers and artists who wish to develop a daily creative practice will commit to working daily on the artistic project of their choice: it could be poems, essays, stories, multi-genre pieces, sketches, paintings, photographs or multi-media pieces. It could be working on a quilt square or knitting project. Sponsors will commit to supporting the artists in their daily practice and will receive their work every day. All money raised will go to legal bonds, living expenses, and legal fees to get asylum seekers out of ICE detention and resettled in Central Vermont as they await their court hearings.Click Here to View a List of our Participants Click Here for Instructions and to Register as a Participant
