Announcement

I've been wanting to announce the following for a while now. It is quite exciting partake upon such a venture and I am forever thankful to the group of friends who have agreed to help organise this ambitious program.

"Woman On A Journey is an art and culture program that is to take place in the Frauenhotel in Luebeck, Germany throughout the year of 2011. The program includes an art exhibit of collages by lilalia, as well as contains various workshops and seminars exploring the central theme of ”Inner and Outer Journeys Of Discovery”.

The seminars are informative and inspirational presentations, whereas the workshops are participatory or exploratory in nature. Various themes are explored, such as,

  • Women traveling Solo
  • Luebeck: A city seeped in culture and of many cultures (perspectives from migrant women on International Women’s Day 2011)
  • Growing old with all your senses and common sense
  • Africa: A Continent of Resourceful Entrepreneurs
  • Social-Marketing vs. Social Engagement

Woman On A Journey is the brainchild of lilalia and Sabine D. whose intention is the support of women networks through artistic and cultural exchange. In the background of the art exhibit and public events is the promotion and support of a community of businesswomen in Kimilili, Kenya. The central goal of the program is to create a lively conversation amongst women who aspire to living life as an inward and outward journey of discovery."

  8. Congratulations, Lia! This is really impressive and exciting! I particularly like this: "who aspire to living life as an inward and outward journey of discovery." It reminds me of my favorite quote by Lillian Smith: "I soon realized that no journey carries one far unless, as it extends into the world around us, it goes an equal distance into the world within." It looks like you are taking those words to heart :) Kxo
