Our initiatives are dynamic. They create opportunities for awe, inspiration, and connection. Whether it’s a street exhibit, with interactive art-making activities, or an intensive healing workshop in a private setting, our aim is to impact our community in positive ways. By sharing our experiences, strength, and hope, we all grow. Here at MoM, we come from many cultures and backgrounds, but we are all one BIG HUMAN FAMILY.
We gather together to support each other’s affirmations and well-being. The FeMail workshop led by Suzie Banks Baum and Karen Arp Sandel facilitates reflection, personal expression, and the potential for creativity. Using found collage materials, we set our sights on the future by sending ourselves notes and letters about our aspirations, using the USPS. What can you share about yourself today? Who are you now? Who will you become tomorrow? Let’s support each other’s journey and joy!
Taking MoM To The Streets
Museum Mile Festival takes place on Fifth Avenue from 82nd St. to 105 St. every summer in New York City. It is an open house party celebrating arts and culture where museums like the Metropolitan Museum, the Guggenheim, and The Jewish Museum (to name a few) open their doors to the public and invite everyone to play. The Museum of Motherhood was located at 401 East 84th St. and participated in the Festival, bringing MoM to the streets with interactive activities and giveaways (2013-2015). Now, we look forward to joining in on the many outdoor events in St. Petersburg, Florida, including the AEHK Studio Tour each spring in Historic Kenwood.
Silent No More
LASALLIAN WOMEN’S AND GENDER STUDIES CENTER MC
Community activism through community resistance -Silencing refers to techniques used to shut people up when they complain about sexism and other issues. It can also include bullying, violence, and oppression of any kind. Many of us have experienced silencing. Some of us have experienced silencing in provocative, profound or catastrophic ways. Individuals are encouraged to participate in a 90 minute art-making workshop that addresses silencing. Shared art experiences encourage healing & help create community through collaboration. Participants are empowered by making the internal external. Individuals explore techniques that facilitate activism and encourage us all to “Show Up, Speak Up and Act Up” in a supportive and safe environment. You need not be artistic to participate. No prior experience necessary. We provide all the materials for this workshop.
