Women of Appalachia Project: 8th Annual "Women Speak"
ARTS/West is pleased to host the 8th Annual Women of Appalachia Project (WOAP) “Women Speak” performance, an evening of juried poetry, story and song, featuring artists from throughout Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky. The event will be held in the Robert L. Winters Memorial Performance Space on November 18, 2016, at 6pm. The mission of WOAP is to showcase the way in which female artists respond to the Appalachian region as a source of inspiration, bringing together women from diverse backgrounds, ages and experiences to embrace the stereotype – to show the whole woman; beyond the superficial factors that people use to judge her. Doors open at 5:30pm. The presentation is free to the public though donations in support of WOAP and ARTS/West will be taken at the door. There will be a short reception immediately following the performance. Refreshments will be served. For more information go to www.womenofappalachia.com.
