Need: Her Voice - Collecting Letters from Women Worldwide for NYC Art Show

Hello,

I find all womens stories, letters, poems and notes inspiring and they can touch on every emotion. I am an Art Advocate.... I educate and bring awareness thru the arts and voices of others by using visual arts, dance, music, letters and poetry writing. I just closed an Art exhibit titled FEMICIDE which took place in the New York Area and included artwork and support from women all around the world. I am currently curating a show titled "Her Voice" which will include letters from women all around the world speaking on subjects like love, peace, hate, fear, politics, rape, culture, disabilities, family, abuse, suicide, economics and so much more. They must be written in the english language and will be the exhibited in the gallery during an ALL women’s poetry performance supporting women empowerment.

I am hoping that someone will read this post and be interested in participating in this project and forwarding this information for all to see and hear. I am accepting letters from anywhere in the world.... written on any paper and in any format. It is the voice that I am trying to reach, the energy of the words and the feeling from the heart.

We has so much to learn from one another... if we can bridge the gap of fear and the unknown that seperates all women then we can become a powerful unity. The show is to take place in the New York area in October of 2010 and the deadline is the last Saturday in September.

My name is Mia Roman Hernandez and I am from the New York area. Hope you will join us in peac and unity thru the arts and creative writing!!!

Thank you, Peace and Harmony! Mia
