Mother’s Message is a multi-sensory art instillation, musical concert by Cloudlight and interactive exhibit experience incorporating handwritten letters and voicemail messages from community members to their mother’s. It’s dedicated to the women whose greatest qualities and positive energies we see and feel every time we look in the mirror.
Mother’s Message visually incorporates the 2 themes of motherhood and cancer, the constellation that becomes visible in the northern hemisphere in early Spring, around Mother’s Day. The zodiac sign is of a crab whose claws are meant to emulate the breasts of a woman. It is a symbol of womanhood and motherhood.
Tickets can be purchased through the Wealthy Theatre and are $10 pre-sale / $12 at the door. The exhibit will open at 11am in the Wealthy Theatre’s Micro Cinema and run until 2pm. Children under 12 are free.
At The Vendor Exchange, LLP, we believe we can change tomorrow through our emerging businesses to today. We work primarily with emerging, local businesses to help instill responsible practices into their foundations and then provide them with opportunities to grow purposefully, making a positive impact either locally, socially, environmentally or socio-economically. We do this through 3 initiatives: The Indie Flea Grand Rapids, a local makers market which was designed to give Responsible Businesses a chance to grow, collaborate and get immersed in their community. We are environmentally responsible and working towards a zero waste and plastic free process. We host monthly seminar/networking groups incorporating critical thinking and covering a different innovative Responsible Business practice topic each time. Our seminars are called Pioneering Entrepreneurs! Meet and Reimagine Responsible Business. Thirdly, we have www.msmerchantmagazine.com which is a platform to bring female entrepreneurs together who are looking to make positive change through their business. We link new insights to ideas and encourage diversity as a way to spark innovation.
