Love Letters at Women's Worlds Global Feminist Conference, July, 2011

It was such an honour to share the stories and experience of Love Letters with this global community on the grounds of the University of Ottawa! Many more letters, including the first multi-lingual additions to the show, appeared during the conference. Radical knitting was also a new and welcome contribution!

New Call For Submissions

I am pleased to announce that I am now accepting submissions for the latest incarnation of Love Letters to Feminism.

The text and word art received, along with the existing Love Letters from its three previous exhibitions, will be exhibited at Women's Worlds 2011 in Ottawa.

Have an expression of your relationship with feminism shared with over 2,000 conference participants from across the world. Here's how:

We want to know what kind of relationship you have with feminism:

Are you in a long-term relationship?

Is it unrequited love?

A love triangle?

Do you have a crush on feminism?

Perhaps you are having a lovers’ quarrel?

Submissions to the exhibition should include:

An artwork/letter that has a maximum size of 8.5x11 inches.
Your name, mailing address, email address, and a short bio on a
separate page.

*Please include the appropriate extra postage inside your envelope if you want your work returned.

Maximum 3 works per person.

Deadline: June 30 2011

Work will be exhibited at Women’s Worlds 2011 Conference, Ottawa, July 3-7, 2011, and will join the Love Letters Collection for future and online exhibitions (unless you indicate otherwise)

Have you Heard?

I am very pleased to announce that Love Letters is going to be part of Women's Worlds 2011. I am very excited to share all of the beautiful, provocative images that have been submitted at this conference in Ottawa, July 3-7, 2011, and to the new works that will be joining the show in the process.

As I begin preparing for another exhibition of Love Letters, make sure you prepare some mail art for the show! I am always looking for new people and places to share the call for submissions with, so please don't hesitate to email me if you have some brilliant ideas about who should know about Love Letters who doesn't already. The official call will start being disseminated in April.
