HERSTORY took place April 29th-30th 2016 at the Silk Road Art Gallery in New Haven, and featured three plays from the 365 Women a Year Project.
This was our first event to take place in New Haven, and we were overwhelmed by the amount of support we received!
365 Women a Year is an international playwriting coalition involving over 200 writers across the world who have signed on to write one or more one-acts about extraordinary women in history. The project’s ambitious yet focused goal is to write women back into the social consciousness as well as empower and promote female playwrights, and plant seeds of herstory around the country.
The Silk Road Art Gallery in New Haven is the first gallery of it’s kind in New England. Their mission is to provide space for the local community to view, learn about and support exceptional Chinese and local contemporary artists, create a platform where successful and emerging Chinese and local artists can showcase their artwork to the world, allow Chinese and local artists to meet, mingle, and learn from each other, create opportunities for individuals and businesses to collect, showcase, support, and invest in top Chinese and local artists, their work, and their future, and introducing exceptional local artists into China.
Koffee? donated food and hot drinks for both nights. Rainbow Gardens Restaurant and Cloud Nine Day Spa donated gift cards for doorprizes.
