As the University of Michigan's Center for the Education of Women's Visiting Social Activist, I've been traveling all around Michigan to talk about Creating4Change and the four wonderful women featured in the film.
On October 15th, I spoke at the Michigan Human Trafficking Task Force's conference 'Human Trafficking: A Closer Look' in Dearborn, MI on Kolkata Sanved's approach to rehabilitating survivors of trafficking and abuse through dance movement therapy in India.
On October 26th, I headed over to the St. Thomas Community Presbyterian Church in Shelby Township to share Creating4Change with a group of 100+ women...
...at the Changing HerStory event! This women's micro-lending organization was inspired by the remarkable women of iZōsh: Women Investing in Women in Ann Arbor, where I spoke in March 2015, and the Half the Sky book by Nicholas Kristof & Sheryl WuDunn.
Tonight I'm heading to the University of Michigan's School of Music, Theater & Dance to chat with students about marketing their art, and next week I'll be speaking to a group of 200+ undergraduates in the Global Scholars Program about the film. Phew! It's been an exciting month meeting new men and women who want to know more about using art to improve the lives of women and girls around the world.
