Queens Of Style

Queens of Style, March 5

We dare you to find a better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than this. Female artists from up and down California and neighboring states will come together to showcase their skills in artistic expression. A feast for the eyes and the soul, through art work, live painting and performances, they will elevate the space together in one place.

We are excited to announce that Dj Agana and other members of the Few and Far Women crew will be present to share their gifts and create a live mural. Other event guests include student artists, spoken word artists, vocalists, musicians and more.

Without the community, the Urbanists, Urban Art Collective would not be able to do the work we do. So in that same spirit of community, in addition to the arts and entertainment, we are also inviting service providers offering valuable community resources to come hang out with us and connect with the public.

 

A panel discussion is also scheduled on the morning of March 5 that will feature four well-known successful artists from outside of the area to share their stories, inspire us all, and answer any questions. Help us make this happen!

Support of donate HERE.

Queens of Style art event is 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 5 throughout downtown Visalia,including the Visalia Lumber Yard, Oak and Garden streets and the Arts Consortium on the c orner of School and Church streets.

Palestinian female refugee painting in the streets

Laila Ajjawi is determined to make positive change within her impoverished community.

As a woman who lives in an impoverished and overcrowded Palestinian refugee camp, Laila was born on one of the lowest rungs in Jordanian society, her fate almost sealed at birth. Her educational training and art, however, has opened doors and created opportunities for her beyond the camp that she did not realize existed. She uses her public art to question the assumptions her culture makes about women, who are taught to be subservient in a male-dominated society, and of Palestinian refugees, who face ongoing discrimination. Through her murals and activism, she hopes to show other refugees, young women, and girls that they too can take control of their destinies.

“My future doesn’t look easy,” Laila said, but said that living a “normal” or traditional life is even less appealing than whatever challenges lie in her path. The young woman from the tiny Irbid camp aspires to take on the media through her art. “The media is trying to provoke an idea about girls, that girls cannot take control of her life,” she said. “I’m going to become a part of the media that affects people.” -Laila Ajjawi

Fundraiser to volunteer in Cuba

Meme has been invited to volunteer with an Non-Profit called Amigo Skate Cuba from Jan. 6th-12th 2016.
As you may know I’m dedicated to women’s empowerment and youth outreach, and by having a woman like myself there who paints and skates, I hope to teach the local kids about both subcultures. My aim is to show these youth the possibilities out there, and what potential the future holds for them.
