Women Artists /
Women Healing
Presented by CentroNía’s Community Schools Program


Launched in 2009, Women Artists/Women Healing is an annual series of public workshops, presentations and art exhibits that brings together a multidisciplinary, multicultural and multiregional community of artists, healers, educators, scholars, students and activists each week in March in celebration of Women's History Month. The events are free and open to the public and feature bilingual programs in addition to a light networking reception. 

Produced  by Washington-based author and educator Elizabeth Bruce and artist/activist Timothea Howard, the  inaugural program Women Artists/Women Healing: Multicultural Narratives of Trauma & Survival was brought to the public vis-a-vis Bruce’s 2009 Individual City Arts Fellowship Award. It was described by participants and attendees alike as "powerful" and "emotionally riveting." 

In January 2010, Women Artists/Women Healing was awarded one of 515 grants by the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities. The 2010 program entitled Women Artists/Women Healing II: The Healing Power of Myth, Ritual, and Celebration is presented by CentroNiá Community Schools Program and again hosted at CentroNiá, a nationally accredited education organization that provides affordable quality education programs, professional development, and family-support services in a bilingual, multicultural environment to more than 1500 children, youth, and families in the greater Washington, DC, metropolitan area.

WAWH 2010 again teams Elizabeth Bruce, Art Director at CentroNiá with Community Schools Program Manager Timothea Howard and Media Partner Alivia Tagliaferri of Ironcutter Media, Visual and Graphic Artist Kathy Keler, as well as a Design Team of Elvira Felix, Paola Parra and Kia Alston from CentroNiá’s Communications & Development Departments. WAWH 2010 engages participants in hands-on creative endeavors across disciplines, culture, generations, class and geography, and expands upon the community-based artistic environment engendered at WAWH 2009.
