The Muskegon Center for the Arts has partnered with Red Tent West Michigan in March 2016 for some very special events celebrating women! Throughout the month they will be celebrating International Women's Day by encompassing spoken word, music, movies, panel discussions, creative classes, dance as well as a fine art show, raising money for the Every Women's Place, a local women's shelter.
Saturday March 12, Extended Grace's Experi-Mentor, Barbara Lee, will be participating in a women's issues panel discussion to take place after viewing the documentary film Things We Don't Talk About: Women's Stories from the Red Tent.
We invite you to join us in the celebration of Women!
Things We Don’t Talk About: Woman’s Stories from the Red Tent is a groundbreaking 72-minute documentary film by award winning filmmaker Isadora Gabrielle Leidenfrost, PhD. Spontaneous and organic, a Red Tent is a red textile space where women gather to rest, renew, and often share deep and powerful stories about their lives. The Red Tent movement is changing the way that women interact and support each other by providing a place that honors and celebrates women, and by enabling open conversations about the things that women don’t want to talk about in other venues. Things We Don’t Talk About weaves together healing narratives from inside the Red Tent to shine a spotlight on this vital, emergent women’s tradition. The film provides us an opportunity to remember, to listen, to know, and to find what it is we need to bring back to our communities to help awaken the voices of women.
