Yesterday, Kate Bingaman-Burt tweeted out to the universe: "Tell me about the women that you LOVE. Women you know, women you don't know, women that have changed your life for the better.
She's working on a presentation for International Women's Day (which is March 8th, tomorrow) and asked her community through social media to help her. LOVE IT! Word is there will be a downoadable zine to come...I will keep you posted on that. Until then...who are some of your favorite women? Also...can we just rejoice at all the incredible women, famous & none in these pics?
****Kate IS STILL TAKING NAMES! So get at her...women who have influenced you that you know, don't know, alive, dead, pretend. ;)****
GREAT video of Callie Curry aka Swoon speaking at TED talks in Brooklyn. She shares about her work and wanting to change the world and her environment and how she did exactly that:
"I wanted to become part of something larger than myself, I wanted to embrace the world and become a part of the world...looking back on it I think that my response to that desire was quite literal, I basically started making drawings and sort of gluing them to the world, to walls and things..."
It's so inspiring to hear her speak in her own words about how she made/makes things happen. Curry is a tremendous example of an artist that did, and continues to do it her way. She has most certainly set her path ablaze and I am continually more and more excited to see where she winds up.
