Creative Resiliency: A Benefit Event for the Women's Lunch Place of Boston
Friday, June 3, 2011 from 6:30 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
We are excited to invite you to an innovative and interactive artistic experience: one we hope will spark inspiration and highlight the remarkable resiliency of the human spirit - that which sustains us through hardship, reconnects communities, and renews faith and meaning throughout our lives.
Art, at its best, emerges from this process; as a reflection of hope and as an inspiration for change. This uniquely human capability to transcend even great loss: through envisioning and then creating new possibilities, defines dignity. And, the preservation of dignity drives the mission of the Women's Lunch Place of Boston.
As the first women-only daytime shelter in Boston,the Women's Lunch Place occupies an intrinsic and unique place in our community. Founded by two local physicians over two decades ago, this organization has been worked tirelessly to embody its motto: "Dignity Is Everything" by providing safe refuge, access to care, and workshops aimed at improving the quality of life for some of our city’s most impoverished women and their children.
On June 3rd, we hope to raise awareness of the incredible work of this organization and also create an entirely new social experience. As art induces conversation, and conversations create connections, it is our hope that by immersing several like-minded members of the Boston community in an environment that draws upon the best aspects of creative ability, inspiration and transformations can occur.
We welcome you to become part of the creative process by forging new networks, ideas and friendships through the evening, and to toast a charity that has rooted itself in sustaining and celebrating the redemptive power of human dignity.
