The Foremothers Project is a participatory multi-arts project to explore our relationship with our foremothers. I am exploring my foremothers through images and stories. You can read about the beginnings of the project here: https://robinbrooksart.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=3267&action=edit Interestingly, this project also branched out, leading me to research the stories of my spiritual and creative foremothers. These women artists and change-makers were significant to me at various points in my life’s journey. Along the way, Keith Spiro interviewed me about the Foremothers Project on his podcast and you can watch it here:: https://robinbrooksart.com/robin-is-interviewed-by-keith-spiro/
The Foremothers Project is an invitation for all of us to reflect on the past and come together to heal the present. Please reach out if you would like to participate in the project by sharing a Foremothers story of your own. The Foremothers Weekend of Events at Meetinghouse Arts in Freeport is shaping up. Mark your calendars for May 19, 20, and 21. https://meetinghousearts.org/event/our-foremothers-exhibition-may-19-21-2023/ More details about the events, including music, storytelling, and author talks will be forthcoming.
The Foremothers Project received partial funding support from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency
supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
