Traveling Postcards and ArtDate!

Traveling Postcards is excited to be a part of JFK University’s monthly art-making social called ArtDate!

ArtDate is a free, drop-in art-making party designed to inspire and connect you with your inner muse. Robbyn Alexander, core faculty member at JFK University’s Arts and Consciousness program, created the monthly, Friday evening events with the hope that anyone could come and reconnect with their soul. As we all know, creativity and self expression provide an opportunity to remember what is important in our lives. I love when I can take time to slow down and make something with my hands and my heart. ArtDate provides such an opportunity.

This month’s ArtDate is on June 12th from 7:30 – 10:00pm at the JFK Berkeley campus. http://www.jfku.edu/campus_directions/berkeley/

ArtDate offers Traveling Postcards an opportunity to increase awareness of women’s needs all over the world to an expanded Bay Area community. I welcome women and girls of all ages (and even men!) to come and make a card to give away. Come and honor a woman you love, make a card in her name and connect with another woman across the world without leaving your home.

Join us in making postcards for a woman who is waiting to know that you care for her. All cards made will be going to the Congo where women’s lives are at risk everyday. I am joining Eve Ensler’s VDAY campaign to fight abuses against women and to let every woman and girl know that we care about what is happening to her. http://newsite.vday.org/

I hope to see you soon! Please remember to bring a photo of yourself or of an ancestor to place on your cards. If you do not have one, it is okay. All materials will be provided so that you can make an amazing work of heart! To view more cards that have already been created, please visit www.travelingpostcards.org.
