Kali Sara is located in France where many Romani make a pilgrimage to see her in late May. She is the Protectoress, bringer of luck and fertility, and curer of sickness. And as such, I thought she was absolutely perfect to begin the One Billion Rising challenge as we work towards curing the sickness that is violence against women.
That said, I am -so- excited to be starting the One Billion Rising Daily Artist challenge!
If you missed the first post, check it out because the premise is simple:
Every day, from now until V-Day, CREATE! (: It doesn't matter what your medium is-- poetry, food, logos, legos, traditional medium-- what ever calls to -you-. Create a piece that embraces the beauty of dance and femininity with respect, hope and love in your intentions.
Then share your art with the world to help bring awareness to One Billion Rising and our world wide goal of ending violence against women. Share it in your blog. Share it on facebook. Twitter it. Share it to the facebook event. Share it here. (Did I mention 'Share It'?) (;
And enjoy the process! There aren't any hard and fast rules. You don't have to finish a piece every day. It's the intentions that matter most. Say that we're four days in and you're just now learning about this challenge-- No worries! You are welcome to join as we continue to count down to V-Day and join the world to Strike, Dance and Rise!
Here's an absolutely beautiful flamenco performance.
