WWW is partnering with Survivor's Theater Project, Summer/Fall 2014
Founded from an idea presented at our UP Collective meeting, we are a holistic womens collective, a holding place for those who have or who are struggling with various forms of oppression. We are a refuge, where sustainable and effective dialogue, co-mentoring, creative expression through writing and artwork, shared leadership, community activism, and upholding and manifesting our dreams is an investment we put into ourselves, each other, and thus our community! Please join our group!
I In recent years, WWW has hosted a writing workshop as a part of The Berkshire Womans Writing Festival, produced countless works of poetry and art (this is a weekly exercise), and recently put on an art show as apart of Pittsfield's First Fridays Art Show. WWW is very excited to partner with Survivor's Theater Project and YVETTE "JAMUNA" SIRKER, this summer and fall. Yvett “Jamuna" Sirker, MFA is an award winning playwright, director and producer whose work has been seen Off-Broadway, Off-Off Broadway and in Regional Theater. She has 20 years experience as teaching artist and is presently Writing and Media Specialist for Pittsfield Public Schools, Adjunct Professor of Communications for Berkshire Community College and Artist in Residence with Enchanted Circle theater Co.
The Women, no stranger to using the arts to heal, will work with Melissa Redwin, *Artistic Director*of Survivor's Theater Project and Yvette Jamuna Sirker to utilize different forms of creative expression, producing a play the woman can call their own. This play will be unique; infused with a multi-media approach (poetry, visual art, photography, spoken word, and music)! It will provide a safe outlet for woman to release histories held deep with-in; transforming hurt and trauma into healing. Having just started the project July 11th, we are actively looking for woman who want to be a-part of this exciting project as we start up sessions again this fall. Participants will be stipend for their diligent work!
We have raised $1500 for this project but still have $3000 to go! Please contact us if you would like to sponsor our project or donate. We will be starting an indiegogo campaign soon and will post the link here up and coming. In the meantime, you can e-mail, to donate directly. You can also donate directly to Survivor's Theater Project and specify your donation to go to: The Woman Weaving Worlds project! Go to .
