Workshop led by Signe Schaefer

The annual Berkshire Festival of Women Writers is a collaborative, multi-venue event sponsored by Bard College at Simon’s Rock with many local partners, celebrated county-wide in the month of March, Women’s History Month. The Festival began as the vision of alumni parent, Dr. Jennifer Browdy de Hernandez, and this year GBRSS will host one workshop for the festival, lead by Signe Schaefer, “Writing from life- Writing for life”.
Writing is an important tool in working with our own biographies. As we write about our lives, we can awaken insights into past events and can also discover windows and doorways to the future. Biographical writing invites us to open our attention, to look beyond what we think we know, beyond our habits of self-perception. Using visual prompts we will explore our way through past experiences toward our own next steps – as writers and/or in our everyday lives.
Signe Schaefer is the author of Why on Earth? – Biography and the Practice of Human Becoming (Steiner Books, 2013). She is also co-author of Ariadne’s Awakening and co-editor of More Lifeways. She is the founding director of the Center for Biography and Social Art and a longtime adult educator, including recent workshops in China.
Our early childhood teachers have created an original story book, The Hollyhock Dream, about a girl and her little brother who venture through the forest in search of the flower their mother dreams will make her well.
The fairy tale debuted as a puppet play at the school’s Holiday Handcraft Fair in November, and teachers will perform it again for the community at Mason Library in Great Barrington, Saturday, March 15 at 11:00am.
The Hollyhock Dream storybook, created locally in the spirit of giving to the community, is available at Matrushka Toys & Gifts, 309 Main Street, Great Barrington. Copies will also be available for purchase at the library performance.
All are invited to meet the artists at the opening reception of the GBRSS Art Show at the Good Purpose Gallery, 40 Main Street in Lee, Massachusetts, on Saturday March 15, 5-7pm. Join in the festive atmosphere of good works with good purpose, including wine and small bites during the event. To learn more about the gallery, visit goodpurpose.org
The show runs through April 28th at the Good Purpose Gallery and works for sale include paintings, photographs, drawings and ceramics by artists in the community, with proceeds to benefit the programs of the and the Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School.
We are also partnering with GBRSS Art Show at Paddle8.com, to bring you an online preview of the show from March 3-March 14th. The online show will be a bit larger than the gallery show, so be sure to visit both and tell your friends and family!
Support two good causes–GBRSS and the College Internship Program–while acquiring some fabulous artwork.
