I AM A WOMAN WHO with Jill Valle

Join us on August 4th & 5th for our IAAWW pop-up weekend in Edgartown!  The I AM A WOMAN WHO project uses portrait photography and confessional writing to explore the threads that connect women to other women in the world, no matter what their backgrounds or experiences. It inspires the release of raw, uncensored truths captured in the moment through stream-of-consciousness writing coupled with imagery that serves as both catalyst and canvas.

Each session takes the participant down an empowering journey of self-reflection in a fun & accessible environment.  In approximately one-hour sessions, women explore the meaning of the prompt “I am a woman who…” with free-writing and discussion of this theme and the threads that connect your writing to that of other women in the world. Valle then crafts a backdrop, which participants can keep after the session, and Valle will take their portrait in front of that backdrop, which she calls "your powerful expression of truth."

When artist and educator Jill Valle originally started doing this project, she wanted to uncover a visual and heart-centered way that explains what connects us as women, despite our differences. “The premise of the project is a celebration of our unique self-expression and examining how we identify ourselves as women, as individuals and as human beings," Valle says. 

Space is limited and appointments are required.  Sign up today for this empowering weekend activity for women of all ages - from mothers and daughters and sisters to teammates and friends.
