Labor of Love
This exhibit, which was created by Vermont Works for Women in collaboration with the Vermont Folklife Center, features stories and photos celebrating the transformative power of work by focusing on ways in which work can engage our passion and connect us to others and in communities. It was created as part of VWW’s 25th anniversary festivities.
The featured women are farmers, doctors, tattoo artists, college presidents, electricians and general store clerks. They are passionate about their work, exemplify excellence in their field, and are an inspiration to others. Through Labor of Love, we have the invaluable opportunity to discuss our experience of work with the young people in our lives and with each other – to talk about the choices we’ve made and the twists and turns of our individual journeys. They are stories worth sharing.
Throughout 2013, the exhibit has traveled to numerous locations across the state, including: Winooski, Middlebury, Montpelier, Burlington, Hardwick, Newport, and Rutland.
Upcoming Exhibit Locations:
October 17-19, 2013 - Vermont Technical College, Randolph (Morey Hall lobby)
- Women Can Do! Conference (Thursday, Oct. 17)
- Women’s Economic Opportunity Conference (Saturday, Oct. 19)
