Caroline Lovell, Shelter to Shelter
Caroline is an artist whose passion is using the creative process as a tool for personal growth and community awareness. She says, “I know that our innate wisdom holds great power and our personal expression of that wisdom can cross borders and reach far beyond ourselves to grow and affect change for generations to come.”
Caroline and another artist will spend the month of July traveling across the United States, bringing a unique healing arts workshop, Traveling Postcards, to over one hundred women who are living in safe houses. Caroline’s project will support these often invisible / hidden women in telling their stories and sharing their wisdom. The workshop allows women to create a self-portrait on a blank postcard. Using fabric, pens, glue sticks, ribbons, buttons and thread, women gather and share a story from their hearts. The postcards will be used as a collective art exhibit that will be shown in San Francisco at the culmination of the month long journey, and also archived in a virtual library online.
