Women Against Hate United By Love
Art exhibition created by J. Leigh Garcia, Rachael Griffin & Kelly Parks Snider
Playhouse Gallery - Overture Center for the Arts
Saturday, May 11th - Sunday, July 7th
Hate divides. It is the ultimate toxin. The sicknesses it spawns—bigotry, intolerance, racism—affect everyone in our country. Women most of all.
But hate also unites. It bonds us together, we find each other, we grow louder, and reach a pitch that must be heard.
Women Against Hate is a collaborative, traveling art exhibition and multi-step “anti-hate” campaign united against bigotry, intolerance and racism. Its creative building blocks are stories—powerful, tough, revealing stories told by women working to dismantle systems of injustice and oppression, and encourage humanness.
Although much has been done, we’re still getting started…a seed planted and wanting to grow. We need the love and support of many courageous women and men to help give birth and define the course for this newly launched initiative seeking to create spaces for radical, soul-bearing honesty and compassion, and make change happen.
Here’s where we are… Women Against Hate has created a unique and powerful traveling art exhibition which is in the process of being scheduled for “gallery” showings around the state in cooperation with local organizations and interfaith groups. Using the art exhibition as a platform for gathering and discussion, these local partners will assist in arranging community events in exhibition spaces and issue a call to action. Through sponsored workshops and panel discussions “Women Against Hate” will allow attendees the opportunity to ask questions, engage in community conversation, and learn how to become involved. This is art in action!
With the help of many strong and determined women and men, Women Against Hate aspires to work in a coordinated effort, aligning with women and partnering organizations throughout Wisconsin – increasing awareness, building communities, and creating change.
Please join us in this formative stage. Women Against Hate needs substantial action. We need you!
