Harriet Beecher Stowe: Writing for Change

Tuition: $15.00

Open to: All Genders 16+

"It's a matter of taking the side of the weak against the strong, something the best people have always done." ~Harriet Beecher Stowe

Join us as we explore how Cincinnati's pre-Civil War history, geography, and society influenced writer and twenty-year resident Harriet Beecher Stowe's famous anti-slavery novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin.

After touring the Beecher family home with a docent-led presentation, we will consider Beecher Stowe's process in crafting a story to promote empathy for the American slave experience that fueled social change. Writing prompts will guide participants in their own journey to discover, question, and understand more about this pivotal time in our shared history. 

Each program in this special series of Write Around the Corner combines reflective writing with a viewing experience that highlights various cultural traditions. From October 2018 to October 2019, ten collaborative programs will be held, generally at the locations of partner organizations. Each program will focus on an exhibit, performance, play, collection, film, or other cultural representation.

The viewing experiences and suggested writing prompts are designed to be thought-provoking for written exploration. Writing offers an opportunity to deepen the experience, as does the discussion that follows the writing time. The goal of this series is to explore and consider a variety of cross cultural expressions, and to foster deeper understanding and awareness of different racial, ethnic and cultural traditions.

Show your support for members of the WWf(a)C and Greater Cincinnati community as they share poems, stories, rants and memories. These readings will both celebrate our sexuality and enjoin us to fight harrassment, abuse, and violence.

By supporting WWf(a)C V-DAY 2019, you bring awareness, energy, and support to the fight against gender-based violence around the world and in our own neighborhoods. Proceeds from this event will directly benefit programs, including writing circles, to help victims of domestic abuse in the Greater Cincinnati area.

For more information about the V-DAY Organization or One Billion Rising please visit vday.org and onebillionrising.org.

This year, specifically in association with our V-Day event, we're initiating a drive to collect feminine hygiene products for direct donation to shelters for survivors of domestic violence.  These supplies are always in demand and will be greatly appreciated!  A collection vessel will be available at WWf(a)C. In addition, we are always delighted to accept donations of unused writing journals. If you have an extra journal, please consider donating for our outreach writing circles that support women and girls of all ages and circumstances in the development of strong voices and positive self esteem.

If you wish to make a donation to purchase tickets for those otherwise unable to attend, or for programs that support victims of domestic abuse, we are grateful for the extra support. Please click here to donate online or mail to WWf(a)C.  Please NOTE the purpose of your donation on your check or the online donation comment box. Thank you!

January 20th, Noon-2:30pm

Women Writing for (a) Change partners with the Cincinnati Art Museum for the third program in this ten-part series. Inspired by the exhibit, participants will be led in the creative process of considering the cultural contexts of the folios, then finding their own words to respond. Writing prompts will guide participants in their own journey to discover, question and understand more about the traditions and the lives of the people behind the exhibit. Facilitated by Katherine Meyer. Register here.

Press Release

The Cincinnati Art Museum has been collecting Islamic calligraphy since the 1940s. These sumptuous works, with precisely articulated scripts that grace the page, explore the prominence and pervasiveness of calligraphy in the arts of the Islamic world.

Richly illuminated folios from poetic and historic manuscripts will be displayed alongside pages from the Qur’an, calligraphic practice sheets, and political decrees in Collecting Calligraphy: Arts of the Islamic World. Through the display of individual folios and complete manuscripts that date from the ninth through the twentieth century, the exhibition emphasizes the craftsmanship and skill evident in each work’s creation. One can appreciate the symbiotic balance between paper size, script, ornamentation, and illumination in works that originate from a myriad of countries; including Iran, Turkey, India, Spain, and Syria. Discovering Islamic calligraphy through this collection reveals how the art of the book functioned as a vehicle to convey knowledge, disseminate the word of God, and legitimize empire. 

Collecting Calligraphy celebrates a recent gift from JoLynn and Byron Gustin, Cincinnati residents and active museum patrons. This significant gift adds to our strengths in the calligraphic arts, an artform long prized by Islamic cultures and which has flourished from the seventh century through the present.

The temporary exhibition will be on view in The Manuel D. and Rhoda Mayerson Gallery and Sara M. and Michelle Vance Waddell Gallery (G124 and 125), across from the museum’s Terrace Café. Free admission. Photography is permitted.

Kwanzaa: Celebrating Family, Community and Culture

Kwanzaa: Celebrating Family, Community and Culture

  • The Hive: A Center for Contemplation, Art and Action (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Register for Tickets $5-$15.

Join Cincinnati neighbors from diverse backgrounds to celebrate Kwanzaa with food, song, and contemplative practices. Kwanzaa is an African American and Pan-African holiday that celebrates family, community and culture. It was created in 1966 by Dr. Maulana Karenga, Professor of Africana Studies. As a ritual, Kwanzaa is based on African harvest celebrations and it’s conceived as a seven-day cultural festival structured around seven core communitarian values called the Nguzo Saba. Each day of Kwanzaa is centered around one of the communitarian values which are Umoja (Unity); Kujichagulia (Self-Determination); Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility); Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics); Nia (Purpose); Kuumba (Creativity); and Imani (Faith). Kwanzaa begins December 26 and ends January 1, with a ritual feast called a Karamu.

The Hive is not a faith community or a community of one ethnic experience, neither are the hosts for this gathering from the same experience. We are an ad hoc group. This experiential workshop will introduce participants to the fundamental tenets of Kwanzaa. You will learn its origins, fundamental activities, essential values, symbols, and greetings. Family members are encouraged to attend together.

This group led event will be curated by Adam Clark. Adam is an Associate Professor of Theology at Xavier University, is committed to the idea that theological education in the twenty first century must function as a counter-story. One that equips students to read against the grain of the dominant culture and inspires them to live into the Ignatian dictum of going forth “to set the world on fire.” He currently serves as co-chair of Black Theology Group at the American Academy of Religion, actively publishes in the area of black theology and black religion and participates in social justice groups at Xavier and in the Cincinnati area.

If you spent time last week thinking how grateful you are for all you have, please help C3 help those with less. Join us at Empty Bowls and select a handcrafted bowl made by local artists and organizations to take home, and enjoy a choice of soup, breads, desserts, and refreshments all prepared specially by local chefs and restaurants. There are two seatings, at 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. The donation is $20 per person.

Also featured this year is a chili cook-off between the Liberty Township and West Chester Township fire departments!

Proceeds from the event are used to support Reach Out Lakota’s ongoing efforts to provide food and clothing to families in need in the local community, and the Faith Alliance Summer Lunch and Literacy Program, which helps more than 400 children during the summer. 

The mission of C3 is to bring diverse sectors (businesses, houses of worship, different cultures) of the community together to educate and raise awareness of community-wide concerns, to identify needs, to build responsive partnerships to address and respond to issues, and to advance the quality of life for our community.

Help support Belonging: Undocumented and American

Sponsorships for the night exist at a variety of financial commitments and help us ensure we reach the broadest audience as we bring in this international speaker. Your organization/business’ involvement is necessary to create a culture of belonging for all people in Cincinnati.

Who is Jose Antonio Vargas? 

Jose Antonio Vargas is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Emmy-nominated filmmaker and a leading voice for the human rights of immigrants. He is the founder and chief executive officer of Define American, the nation’s leading nonprofit media organization that fights injustice and anti-immigrant hate through the power of storytelling. He is the author of the forthcoming memoir, Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen, to be released by HarperCollins on September 18, 2018.

In 2011, the New York Times Magazine published a groundbreaking essay he wrote in which he revealed and chronicled his life in America as an undocumented immigrant. A year later, he appeared on the cover of TIME magazine worldwide with fellow undocumented immigrants in a follow-up cover story. He then produced and directed Documented, a documentary feature film on his undocumented experience. Broadcasted on CNN and streamed on Netflix, the film received a 2015 NAACP Image Award nomination for Outstanding Documentary. In 2015, MTV aired White People, an Emmy-nominated television special he produced and directed on what in means to be young and white in a demographically changing America.

A product of the San Francisco Bay Area, he is a proud graduate of San Francisco State University (’04), where he was named Alumnus of the Year in 2012, and Mount View High School (’00).
