‘The Well’, Bi-Monthly Community Conversational Gatherings

The Womxn Project invites you to help enrich “The WELL” (“El Pozo”) with your company, your activism, and your interest to learn, as education is power! “The WELL” is a bi-monthly gatherings as we look into 2021 and get a range of perspectives on what this year is looking like from the perspective of a range of subject matter experts. The landscape looks different and the same from our health, self-care, activism, civics education, and more. Leave each discussion with different calls to actions so you can lend a hand where you want.

Over the course of the year, you will have the opportunity to hear from TWP leaders, artists, art orgs, electeds, and a range of organizers focusing on intersectional leadership and support from around this state. The discussions will include what the upcoming session is looking like, grassroots activism efforts, and what the creative horizon looks like from the speaker’s vantage points and expertise.

The format of the gathering will be 10 minute speaking time for each guest. Then each speaker will have a call-to-action and email available where you can reach out for additional follow-up. ASL interpreters will be present.
