Fresh StART is the signature fundraising event of the year for the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter (NWAWS). It is an evening of music, hors d’oeuvres and beverages, and is centered around an auction of works from regionally renowned professional artists and artisans, and art pieces donated by our clients from the NWAWS in-shelter art program.

Fresh StART perfectly aligns with the mission and programs of the NWAWS as advocates incorporate art as a therapeutic process to help clients (victims), both adult and children, connect with the emotions they have suppressed as a result of abuse they have suffered. Art is a channel for self-identification and for developing self-awareness and a voice.
