Need: Letters by women around the world ... WANTED

Hello,

I find all womens stories, letters 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 or Spanish language and will be exhibited in the gallery during an ALL women’s 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 have 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 peace and unity thru the arts and creative writing!!!

Thank you, Peace and Harmony! Mia

Letters from Women

Hello Busayo,

Thank you for taking an interest. The letters should be sent via email. They can be written in journal entry format or letter describing what is happening in your country, the treatment of women, the growth, politics, love, struggles ... anything you want to share with other women around the world. The object of this project is for women to learn from one another and to share your voice. A few letters will be selected to read to the audience during the exhibit. The rest of the letters will be on display for all to read. If you wish your letter can remain anonymous just add your country/origin.

I am hoping you will share with us about your people and experiences in your country.

Thank you, Mia

Hermana.... means sister is Spanish.... You have an Hermana in the US (New York City) Peace
