October 2nd and 3rd of 2015, Tasha Dougé, with the support of Harlem United, presents \con-vHER-sa-tions\ at Rogue Space (508 W. 26th Street, NY, NY 10001) benefitting the Alliance for Lupus Research and Endometriosis Foundation of America.
For 2 days, visitors are welcomed into an open art gallery, where they can freely explore and take part in this interactive art exhibition. (Visitors have the option to come on either day or both days.) The theme is Women Empowerment, but in order to be empowered, we have to talk about everything. This includes the beauty of our diversity, but also the things that plague us as women. \con-vHER-sa-tions\ aims to empower women, especially of color, through a 3 prong approach: eliminating stigma and shame around body image and sexuality, enlightening women about commonly misunderstood health issues, and encouraging self and sisterly love and acceptance. The art will be provocative and is meant to elicit authentic, raw and at times, uncomfortable feelings. From those feelings, the goal is to spark open and honest conversations. Overall, the hope is one will emerge with a better sense of what the female experience encompasses which in turn, leads to understanding and better connections.
All over the age of 14 are welcomed.
Featured Guests will include Aleathia Brown (artist), Natassia Constantine (artist), Giannina Gutierrez (artist), and a few more.
