WOMEN beyond borders
To honor and document women’s voices and visions
To encourage dialogue and collaboration
To inspire creative expression
THE ART OF BUILDING COMMUNITY
The arts are a universal and essential language, allowing people to look beyond themselves and celebrate their humanity.
Women Beyond Borders embraces the possibility that women are honored for their untold voices and visions, and that women support one another in this quest. This endeavor is more than an exhibition, it has become a catalyst for dialogue and collaboration.
The myriad box creations have roamed the world, traveling from historic museums to a temple in Kathmandu, a 15th century villa in Umbria, a historic train car in Europe, and a hilltop museum in Japan. WBB has been accessible to thousands of viewers through these diverse venues where participating artists have gathered to meet, celebrate, and exchange ideas. Each exhibition was unique as coordinators reinvented the project along the way, inviting anthropologists and art historians to speak and poets to reflect . . . . .
