Our popular Traveling Postcards workshop, create hand-made art (the size of a postcard) containing words of compassion and solidarity that are hand delivered to individuals and communities, bringing awareness, hope, visibility, beauty and voice to women and girls whose lives have suffered from isolation, violence or repression.
Our creative workshops are designed to raise awareness of social issues, while opening our heart’s intuitive wisdom and empowering a sense of self-worth. Through simple transformative art-making processes we have discovered that we can easily share what might seem impossible to verbalize and our voices can then become a powerful catalyst for change.
Our transformative art workshops are facilitated all over the world in small groups connecting women and girls to their innate wisdom and to one another.
Every participant will have an opportunity to share her voice and make a Traveling Postcard. The cards she makes will travel with us and be collectively exhibited along the way. Upon our return to San Francisco, we will have a large exhibition of the work and stories we collect.
After the exhibition the Traveling Postcards that were created will be shared among the women who made them, connecting woman to woman, shelter to shelter.
We will also be giving each woman who participates an opportunity to choose a Traveling Postcard to keep. We are currently collecting Traveling Postcards to take with us to give away as a gift of solidarity and support. If you would like to send one or facilitate your own Traveling Postcard party please click here for directions!
Please visit our amazing Traveling Postcards website to read more stories and see all the beautiful cards that have been made!
“Where after all do human rights begin? In small places, close to home — so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Such are the places where every man, woman and child seek equal opportunity, equal dignity, without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt
