A couple of weeks ago, I did a presentation about our Dreams for Women project for the Millennium Foundation’s Western Blowout meeting. The meeting brought together Millennium Scholars from across Western Canada. The scholars who took part in my workshop made postcards and I’m posting them today. I would like to thank all the amazing people who I met and who participated in the Dreams for Women project.
I would also like to remind everyone to pick up their Dreams for Women 2009 calendar! Check it out here! Buy one for yourself, buy a bunch for your friends as gifts or buy copies to sell as a fundraiser for your non-profit organization!
Antigone Magazine is facilitating a Feminist Postcard art project! We want to know what your Dreams for Women are.What are your own dreams for yourself, your friends, your sisters, your daughters? Paint, draw, write, sketch or decoupage your dreams on a postcard and send it to the address below:
C/O WILLA UBc
Box 61-6138 SUB Boulevard
Vancouver, BC, Canada
With your postcard submission, we ask that you make a donation (if you can!) to Antigone Magazine for anywhere from $1 to $10. You can send your money along with your postcard or donate on our blog: http://www.antigonemagazine.wordpress.com/
But don’t worry… if you don’t have the money, just send along the postcard and tell people about this program.
What is Antigone Magazine? We’re a grassroots national magazine that works to encourage young women to get involved in politics in Canada. We work to empower young women to engage politically and civically and to actively take part in leadership roles.We are raising the money in order to help launch the Antigone Foundation, a national foundation that will encourage young women aged 10-30 to get politically and civically engaged. Help support Antigone as we help to make the dreams of young women come true!
