“INDWELLING: Living in a Female Body celebrates The Women’s Therapy Centre Institute’s (WTCI) 25th Anniversary on March 23, 24 and 25, 2006. The event promises to be one of the largest gatherings of women this spring in New York City. The event will focus on women’s struggle to find acceptance of their bodies while living in a culture that promotes powerful, toxic images of the “ideal female form.”
All events will be held at The Great Hall of Cooper Union, 7 East 7th Street at Third Avenue.
The celebration and fundraiser will open March 23rd with a gala reception and photography exhibition/sale juried by acclaimed photographer Joyce Tenneson.
The program for March 24th includes speaker/honoree Eve Ensler, award-winning author of “The Vagina Monologues,” activist/humorist Kate Clinton, Speak Out/Spoken Word, exhibits, music, film and more.
On the 25th, the free program includes information about staying in touch, how to find resources, exhibits and a gallery talk by Joyce Tenneson.
Proceeds from the event will further help the WTCI provide programs for the public and practitioners focusing on eating and body image, and free mental health services for survivors of domestic violence.
