Women’s voices ring, out loud
- Published: March 7, 2014
The 35th annual Women’s Voices Out Loud performance will take place at 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 8, at the Herndon Gallery in South Hall on the Antioch campus. The exhibition of artwork will hang in Herndon through March 31.
A longstanding public ritual where local women — and anyone identifying as female — of all ages stand up to speak their minds and share their artwork, this year’s performance features original poetry, spoken word, song, dance and more, while 42 pieces of artwork from 27 local women fill the walls of the Herndon.
Organizers of Women’s Voices Out Loud said they are grateful Antioch College took them in this year. A fortuitous window of time at the Herndon Gallery when no exhibits were scheduled allowed the event to be scheduled there.
Organizer Laurie Dreamspinner sees the Antioch location as an opportunity to raise “new awareness among the Antioch community of the ways in which Yellow Springs is a supportive environment for them.” She hopes Antioch students participate in, and attend this year’s show, with hopes of more collaboration in the future.
