Each of us is a collection of stories; happenings that when strung together, carry us from birth to death.

Ordinary people rarely get
a chance to tell our stories. That opportunity is generally saved for the rich and famous.

We choose to empower all women to recognize their strength and talent. Tales of significant lives will be shared through poetry, essay, and storytelling at Spoken Word, the closing event of the Broad Ideas 2019 Art Show, Sunday, March 31, at the Galena Center for the Arts.

Be present to honor and celebrate these women who write, talk and dance their way through daily life.
