||Attention All Artists and Friends of the Arts:
Women Occupy San Diego (WOSD) is hosting the event:
"Occupy OUR Arts": A Celebration of the 99% Culture and Creative Arts. The purpose of this event is to honor our First Amendment Rights through Freedom of Creative Expression.
We want to show another side of our Occupy Movement, one focused on creative arts & culture by having a fun-filled day bringing families of the 99% together. The atmosphere of our permitted event will be festive, fun, creative, interactive, and inclusive of many art forms. Occupy will reclaim Freedom Plaza (Civic Center) for the day. It will be an all day event with music, dance, theater, chalk drawing, painting, street art, sculpture, photography, a children's garden of creative arts and more.
Free Speech Soap Boxes: A Creative Opportunity for Artists!
A limited number of boxes are available to artists to be decorated, embellished and turned into works of art celebrating free speech, to be auctioned at the Occupy Our Arts Celebration event. These boxes were created for the 100th anniversary of the free speech Movement in San Diego. They are 18"x18" square, open on the bottom with 2 handholds on opposite sides. They are made of plywood with Minwax wood stain. Each ‘soap box’ has a small aluminum plate stamped with "San Diego Free Speech Fights 1912”, and a limited edition number. Fifty percent of the proceeds will go to WOSD, and fifty percent to the artist.
WOSD (Women Occupy San Diego) www.womenoccupysandiego.org wants to let every Member of the 99% Movement know that the San Diego Creative Arts Community supports everyone's right to freedom of creative expression!!! WOSD - Women Occupy San Diego would love to have you be a part of our 99% Creative Celebration.
