Mujeres de Maiz, is a grassroots, multimedia women’s art collective and networking/support circle of emerging Xicana and Women of Color cultural activists and artists in Los Angeles proactively creating work for, by and, about women’s issues from local to global, personal to political, stressing the importance of gender, race, sexuality, and class. Through the programming of ongoing multimedia live arts shows, publications, as well as presentations to schools, conferences, and in both arts and community venues, the group outreaches to urban young women and youth regarding personal and cultural empowerment and history hoping to share and inspire others to collaborate and create their own art.
This space is intended for all of las Mujeres de Maiz to have a space to share with the world what they do. For years I've been asked for referrals for women artists, poets, and performers. I ask that your page be a place where you let people know the following:
-short biography of some type
-What mediums of art you work in (dance, art, poetry, or all of the above, etc.)
-Contact information to get in touch with you,
-Samples of the work (photos, videos, mp3s, etc.),
-Types of presentations or workshops you can do (for conferences, schools, etc.)
This way we can all refer people to check out this site to find the right match for the work, project or vision they do.
Tlazo y paz mujeres...y adelante siempre!
