New in 2016 Muse Art Show, Muse Run & Muse Hub
The 4th annual Muse Women’s Conference, slated for March 4-6, in downtown Bend, Oregon has announced its upcoming line-up of workshops, salons and new offerings including the Muse Art Show, Muse Run and the Muse Hub. From Maasai warriors from Kenya to a Nobel Laureate from Iran, this year’s conference brings together local women and teens with internationally recognized artists, authors, athletes, entrepreneurs, activists and social change leaders to celebrate International Women’s Day and kick off Women’s History Month.
Muse Conference, held each year in Bend, Oregon, is based on the belief that women hold enormous potential as catalysts for change in their lives, in their communities, and in the world. We want to connect, support, and inspire women as they create the change they want to see. Muse is hosted by World Muse, a registered non-profit that believes women and girls can change the world. World Muse offers year-round programming including in-school, after-school and summer camp opportunities for women.
Amanda Stuermer, World Muse Founder, said, “In 2015 over 100 volunteers worked over 1,000 hours to help World Muse reach nearly 3,000 women and girls locally and globally. This year, with a top-notch line-up, we are looking forward to bringing new voices, stories, and conversations, as well as some exciting new events to the Muse conference weekend.”
The three-day conference schedule includes a Salon Series and First Friday Curated Art Show on Friday; the Conference, Muse Reception and Dinner on Saturday; and a Workshop Series, Muse Run and Community Yoga on Sunday. Events take place at The Tower Theatre, Muse Hub (Liberty Theater) and COCC in Bend.
