WonderFest Report Day 5: Wonder Women magic!

Image

From moment 1 to moment infinity, carried in a sweet memory, the final hurrah of WonderFest (Wonder Women in Concert) was pure magic!  There was raucous laughter, sweet sobbing, and moments of crowd connection not experienced every day.  It will live in my heart forever.

We heard accounts of how the week of WonderFest had changed peoples lives for the better: people writing music again, people leasing a bar to start their own business, people quitting jobs they didn’t belong in.  There was generosity in spirit and applause both onstage and off.

Magic hovers over the crowd! (Photo by Arlene Paculan!)

WonderFest Report Day 4: Wowza!

Image

Oh, man!!! There is so much of the spreading of empowerment through art happening during WonderFest that I feel I can’t do it justice in prose!

For fuller details on our experience, see our WonderWomenWorld blog!
In a nutshell, Day 4 brought us:

Workshop: Turning Wounds Into Wisdom lead by Nova Browning Rutherford.
The group learned to accept the discomfort of change, to focus on actions that lead toward our goals and values, and that life is in fact long and not short therefore we have plenty of time to figure things out and follow our path!

Image

The Workshop group!

 

Super Men Concert!  Wowza Wowza what a lineup of talent to digest!  The evening was jampacked with music and words to move the soul, friendship to fill the heart, and laughter to jiggle the belly!

Image

Arlene and I with the wonderful Super Men!

 

Which brings us to tonight! Tonight is the WonderFest finale: Wonder Women in Concert! Gladstone Hotel 7pm (doors) 8pm (show) with art displays, videos, vendors, a special comic book photo booth for all, and of course the lineup of Wonder Women!  I’ll be performing my new song Love Mania! Wakawakawakawaka!  We hope to see you there spreading empowerment through art!

The foundation of friendships is a force for mountain moving! (Arlene Paculan and I, WonderFest co-conspirators!)

WonderFest Report-Day 2

NewWonderFestcoming

WonderFest Day 2 brought us the creative freeform session of open mic and jam collaboration at The Central!  It was great to see the work of empowerment in action. There were a few individuals who came to the session to break out of their shell, get some practice and gather impetus to write that song, finish that CD, get up on that stage again and empower themselves to follow their dreams.  Yay!  It worked!

Tonight is Lisa Anita Wegner’s workshop How Art Saved My Life 7pm at Fringe Creation Lab, 720 Bathurst Street.  For more info, as always: www.WonderWomenWorld.tumblr.com

Some highlights of Day 2’s collaboration/open mic night here:
