Home | An Exploration & Exposé

An artistic adventure into your soul digging deep into your dreams and nightmares for self growth, creative expression and fun. Sharing your findings with the community for collective empowerment.

Write. Draw. Perform. AND SHOW

WHY HOME? Siren Project sent out a survey to the women's’ community at large asking what should be the topic of this year’s Exploration and Exposé. “What issues are challenging women in the Bay Area that, if explored through creativity, will be insightful and empowering.” The responses led to Exposé | “Home”.

What does “Home” mean to you? Are you at home with yourself ? Do you know your place in in this world? Where do you belong? What is a safe space for you? What is your relationship to your physical home and it’s other inhabitants like your family, your partner, your room mates? Do you love the house, the neighborhood, the city or town you live in? What would your dream home be like? Where do you belong? What makes you feel most at home?

You will explore questions like these and yo u r p e r s o n a l o n e s a ro u n d yo u r relationship with “Home” for yourself through your artistic work for personal growth. And then expose your findings to others for raising collective wellness.
