HerStories Fest & Fundraiser 2011

Call for HerStories Fest 3/18/11 – Fundraiser for the Women’s Center of Greater Lansing

Celebrate stories about women during Women’s History Month while benefiting the Women’s Center of Greater Lansing! HerStories Fest on the evening of Friday, March 18, is an opportunity to do both. Everyone is invited to come and honor women’s lives through artistic expression. Details about the event are soon to follow. We will begin at Everybody Reads Bookstore, 2019 E. Michigan Ave., Lansing, with a reception at 6:30pm.

Recently WCGL director Cindie Alwood appealed to the Greater Lansing community for financial help . See her note on Facebook “We Can Do It but we need YOUR help”. Artists, organizers, and volunteers are needed to make HerStories Fest shine and be a success for the financial needs of the WCGL.

Would you like to contribute toward this grassroots event? Here are a few ways to be a part of HerStories Fest:

* artistic performance (spoken word, poetry reading, storytelling, music)
* donations for a silent auction (original artwork, services)
* food service (organizing donations, preparing opening reception)
* promotion (flyer design printing, and/or distribution)
* media (blogging, pitching a story to news sources, creating a video story)
* presence at event (set-up, clean-up, on-site help)

Contact herstories.project @ gmail.com with your interest! Additional ideas to help with HerStories Fest also are welcome.

Please stay tuned for the announcement about a meeting next week, when people can come in person or join us online to prepare for the event.
