Event: Embrace Your Crazy and Kick Your Inner Critic to the Curb
A fun and inspiring event in honor of Women’s History Month
Join us during Women’s History month and let’s honor all the “crazy” women ground breakers. Let’s make crazy less crazy!
- “Hysteria” and “crazy” has been applied to women for centuries. In the late 1850s when the women’s rights movement started picking up speed they were thought to have “hysteria.”
- In 1995, when Arianna Huffington announced the launch of The Huffington Post many in the media world thought her idea was “crazy.”
- When scientist Katalin Kariko was researching a substance called mRNA at a prestigious US university, her research was dismissed as a “crazy” dead end. Now, her pioneering work paved the way for the Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines.
Women who make history have always been thought of as a little “crazy.”
Our event will feature:
The women behind “Know Your Crazy,” a little artbook with a big message that you’re not alone in your crazy. Who hasn’t had a bad hair day, or a bad skin day, or day when you feel invisible? You’ll meet multimedia artist Vivienne Boucherat who created her “little mad women,” and co-creators of the book Cindy da Silva and Rene Harbison.
