Art SALE to raise funds for a trip to Nepal to work with traumatized women who escaped from human trafficking

Meredith Mustard Open Art Studio Sale

In June, I will be joining Gloria Simoneaux (www.harambeearts.org/) in Nepal to conduct a training for women who are survivors of human trafficking. They will be empowered to reach out to other women who have experienced the same trauma. I worked with Gloria in San Francisco as a board member and facilitator for DrawBridge, an arts program for homeless children. We share a similar approach to reaching and connecting with survivors of trauma; I, with attachment-challenged children and she, with traumatized women and children around the world.

Gloria spent the past five years doing this work in Africa and recently returned from Haiti where she trained adults to carry on her work.

Shakti Samuha (http://www.shaktisamuha.org.np/) is the first organization in Nepal established and run by survivors of trafficking. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to support these women and this organization.

I hope you will join me May 19th and 20th to have fun and support this vital work. Sunday afternoon we will be marbling paper and you will have an opportunity to try your hand at this amazing and magical process. I will also be showing calligraphy, earrings, and paintings for your enjoyment and for sale.
