A Monologue Series Celebrating Resilience, Resistance, Empowerment, and Healing

The Womxn’s Resources and Research Center is excited to invite you to the OurStories 2019 production, March 1st and 2nd at 6:00pm in Veterans Memorial Theatre, Davis (P’atwin land) CA! WRRC’s OurStories production is student produced, directed, written, and performed. Through a series of performances, the production of OurStories centers the impacts of gendered violence on the community in order to create visibility, educate, and work to end systems of oppression.

Central themes of OurStories include violence, empowerment, and healing. OurStories serves as a space in which those impacted by gendered violence, and/or those wishing to engage with their narratives through performance can share their stories and connect with other members of the community.

We hope you can forward this email to students, faculty, and community members about the OurStories Art Gallery! 

The WRRC is also looking for artists to submit their art pieces to the OurStories Art Gallery! We are hoping to receive poems, prints, paintings, and other 2-dimensional media that relate to the themes of resistance, resilience, empowerment, or healing.

The OurStories Art Gallery will be located in the Veterans Memorial Theatre lobby, where audience members can vote on their favorite piece. The winners of the most votes will win a gift card of $100, $75, or $50!  All artwork submissions are due February 15th.
