Thank you all for the insightful input and ideas you’ve shared with us so far!
We are excited to announce that we will now will be hosting a couple of in-person community engagement pop-ups at some local events across Santa Clara County.
Your participation during this process has been more than helpful. Please continue to share your feedback and questions on our map online or come visit us at our booth at the S 1st Block Party on July 17, 2021 from 4PM - 7PM to participate in some art-based activities around women's recognition.
Check back regularly for more updates on community engagement pop-ups in your area!
Thank you to everyone who has commented so far! We’ve appreciated all your feedback and it’s helped us get a better understanding of the community’s interest in how we can honor women's contributions to the region. To continue the dialogue, we’ve added some new questions about:
- Where women and groups should be honored in specific areas of Santa Clara County.
- How women and groups should be honored.
- How the women you want to nominate for recognition are connected to the region.
- Where sites of recognition already exist.
Click through these new topics in our Feedback section and post your ideas to help us continually improve our project. We can’t wait to hear from you!
What does recognition in public art look like as we reconsider issues of representation and cultural equity?
We're going LIVE on Saturday, May 8, 2021 at Noon for Artists Honoring Women, an artist talk series featuring artists sharing their experiences of working on recognition projects that shine light on the stories and contributions of significant women, places, and historical events. This Saturday, we will be joined by Founding and Artistic Director, Rene Yung of the project Chinese Whispers, a nonprofit and multi-platform project that tells the stories of the Chinese pioneers and their contributions to the American West! There will be a Q&A portion of the program where we will be taking in audience questions for the artist and project.
Join us LIVE on Saturday 5/8 at Noon on the Womanhood Facebook or YouTube page!
See you soon!
Today marks our campaign launch for Mapping Women's History in Santa Clara County! During our livestream, we were joined by two presentations from Courtney Porcella of coUrbanize (a live presentation) and Ellis Harry from Geocaching (a pre-recorded segment) to explore how art, mapping, and game-based techonology can transform the ways in how we engage within our communities during the pandemic and how we can engage through the Womanhood project!
No worries if you missed it! You can view the recorded livestream through Facebook and YouTube in the links below!
