Women & Creativity

WOMEN & CREATIVITY is an annual, month-long series that celebrates women’s creativity across the disciplines. This year marks the 12th anniversary of the program.

Women & Creativity places particular emphasis on the innovation, exchange and leadership of our community’s most visionary women. Our Featured Events > are curated collaborations; they are inventive, resourceful, inspiring programs that integrate myriad creative fields.

We also continue to highlight dozens of additional statewide partners and their extraordinary exhibitions, performances, workshops and other presentations throughout March — Women’s History Month — on our Women & Creativity Community Calendar >.

We hope that you’ll join us for all of our fantastic events and play along > at home!

Current Harwood Artist

I have been a Harwood Artist since 2001. Four different spaces, four different lifetimes and across media. Sometimes my studio has been a graphic arts workshop, sometimes a painting studio, sometimes a production pottery shop, but being here is always wonderful. From late nights preparing materials for art students to mornings doing pre-natal yoga while I waited for the older child to be done with his work at Escuela del Sol, it is wonderful to reflect on all the art adventures I’ve had over the years at Harwood. The very first night I lived in Albuquerque was spent at a film program at Harwood and from that moment I knew this was an organization I wanted to be involved with. That was 17 years ago and the dream of that first night has blossomed into a reality and a community of which I am proud to be a part!
