Hello artists and art lovers. On Saturday, March 5, I represented PeacexPeace along with Women for Women International and others at Washington, DC's Duke Ellington Bridge to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Women's Day which is TODAY. The campaign is called "Join Us on the Bridge" and it is sponsored by Women for Women International. There were women representing several organizations including students from local colleges who majored in international affairs. My organization, PeacexPeace was a co-sponsor.
It was an honor and a pleasure to be part of this small group of women supporting and joining in the statement of the status of women all over the world.
During our short time together encouraged and raised awareness to those who passed by the 100th Anniversary of International Women's Day to join us. I briefly spoke about the mission of PeacexPeace and encouraged participants to go on our website and learn more about our mission to promote peace and dialogue among women around the world!
I would like to thank Mary Ellen Kustin who organized the event in Washington, DC on the Duke Ellington Bridge on Saturday!
I am an emerging self taught doll artist who is learning how to improve my craft. I started doll making 3 years ago and stopped due to entrepreneurial pursuits. Now with the help of my mentor Francine Haskins, I am beginning the craft again with much more vigor and interest. Please share this journey with me.
