EWI is issuing a call for Muslim and Arab women artists to participate in an exhibit entitled Speak Your Mind: The Art, Stories, and Cultures of Arab and Muslim Women. This is open to artists working in all media and living in the Greater Washington DC Metro Area (Maryland, Virginia and District of Columbia).


Speak Your Mind is part of the We the People Project 2011, Empowered Women International’s annual arts presentation and outreach project. The project documents through art the immigrant and refugee women’s experience, explores issues of integration and identity, and preserves and celebrates traditions, art and stories that build dialogue, respect and multicultural understanding about our global community.


“We the People Project 2011” includes a four-week juried mixed media group exhibition of Muslim and Arab women artists living in the DC Metro area along with a one-day event that features art demonstrations and talks by some of the finest local Muslim and Arab women artists. Check it out and share it with your network.
