VAGINA FESTIVAL 2007
Mission: To raise awareness of the pervasiveness of violence against women, to challenge its chokehold on women worldwide; to support women who have survived violence and to honor the women who have not; to create a space where people can come together and women's stories can be told, and to celebrate women, peace, creativity and collaboration.
Visual art, music, voice, dance and performance art were presented at Vagina Festival 2007, the first! We donated proceeds to V-Day to support its efforts to end violence against women worldwide.
The festival took place Feb. 16-18, 2007, at Agni Gallery, NYC.
