This Mothers' Day will be busy! Please join us in spirit or in person for these evnts:
Standing Women: I am organizing a STANDING WOMEN event, as there's been one (or more) on Bowen annually for the past few years. We will be standing for a better world on Mother's Day, May 9, at 1 pm local time, on the grass in Artisan Square. For more information, see http://www.standingwomen.org/
In 2007, Standing Women organized almost 4,000 events around the world, and brought together many thousands of people.
We'd love to have you participate. Take a look at the web site, and if you have the opportunity, please join us. If you like, you can register your participation here:
...or you can just show up!
We will stand on the grass in the middle of Artisan Square, on Bowen Island. Afterward we will head over to the MAMA exhibition at the gallery for...
MAMA Conversation: a group story and poetry gathering for anybody who has ever had a mother. We'll introduce ourselves, drink tea, talk about our own mothers and our mothering thoughts and experiences, and we'll do a couple of group exercises around mothering story and poetry. We'll end with an easy spiral dance.
Both are Standing Women and MAMA Conversation are free and open to the whole community.
Please join us if you can, or stand with us in another location, wherever you are.
