A Women’s Dinner in the City

November 16, 2013
in the shadow of the historic Woman’s Building, in the Anabolic Monument Native Plant Garden, LA State Historic Park, near Downtown LA.

100 women formed a gathering in the urban landscape to examine our civic histories of place-making –thinking about intentional spaces old and new. We toured the historic Woman’s building and read aloud a mural still visible on its walls, liking ourselves into its trajectory. We discussed histories and futures, dined on curry and a plentiful dessert potluck, performed with the city skyline behind us, plotted and exchanged phone numbers.
