The Gestare Art Collective | Reflections on the Womb Walk Project | Saturday, July 23, 2-4pm
Reflections on the Womb Walk Project Artist talk with the Gestare Art Collective (Barbara Bickel, Nané Ariadne Jordan & Medwyn McConachy)
Sat. July 23 at 2pm 826 East Pender St., Vancouver BC, 604 564 3261
This talk launches the Gestare Art Collective 2011 residency at the STAG which will take place July 25 - 29.
Womb Walks are labyrinth walking and sometimes labyrinth making rituals that take place in different geographic locations where the members of the Gestare Collective are. Following the lead of Nané’s birthday labyrinth tradition we walked (and made) labyrinths on each others birthdays in parallel time in 2011.“As many of you know, the labyrinth has been significant to me in relation to re-claiming ancient women’s knowledge lineages of my middle name ‘Ariadne’ – priestess of the labyrinth with her guiding thread that leads us into and out of mysteries of birth/life/death, through womb-entering the labyrinth’s sacred geo-mantics of the Mother.” - Nané
We walk with the intention of supporting each other in placental wombworkings on these anniversary days of our births—the day we left our earth mother’s wombs. We invite others to take up this practice as a way to support each other on the paths we walk on this earth.To see the project go to http://www.gestareartcollective.com/womb-walks.php
