Please join Traveling Postcards for an amazing FIESTA on April 4th, 4:30-6:30pm at the Department of Arts and Consciousness, JFK University, Berkeley campus. Come and make a card for the woman of Punta Banco and join us for an evening of art, music and creativity. I will bring all the supplies, and you will bring a photograph of yourself or a woman you would like to honor, and together we will make a card to acknowledge women all over the world.
I will be traveling to Costa Rica this summer with a group of artists from JFK University and the CommunicArte Project. We will engage in an art and ecology program that provides multi-cultural learning exchanges between artists, teachers, students and locals. I will bring with me all the Traveling Postcards that are made during the Fiesta and give them away.
I am hoping to integrate the need for women’s voices to be shared around the world, by making cards with the woman in Punta Banco and by working within a larger context of a community art project that is co created with the residents of Punta Banco.
Please take a look at the CommunicArte website and read about all the wonderful projects that have occurred over the last year. I am inspired by their motto!
“CAP art projects are driven by everyday concerns, by real-life experiences that inspire or drive us to respond.”
Creativity has the power to heal and transform. There are so many simple acts of kindness that can change the lives of many.
