Featuring Critically Acclaimed Author, Speaker & Actress Dale Allen!
Dale Allen has been described as “a living Goddess, a bright light, a messenger, a teacher, a storyteller who was born to be listened to!” She has brought her talents to scores of audiences - nationwide and from Kauai to Dubai, with her one-woman show, In Our Right Minds™, A Celebration of Women, the Sacred Feminine and the Right Brain. Join Dale Allen on an expedition deep into the foundations of our collective psyche and out to the edges of our paradigm. Shake up old assumptions, discover the Goddess archetype and recognize how profoundly ancient wisdom can strengthen us as modern men and women.
"Dale Allen, in her one-woman performance, is the first woman I have ever known who can define the essence of women in a thought provoking way that empowers women while embracing men. Her message and her beauty shine from within and from without." Arlene Scanlan, Broadway Producer, La Cage aux Folles, Blithe Spirit, Oleanna, On Golden Pond

History of Woman Exibit May 23 - June 23, 2012
Talks are underway between the Quick Center and Montage Initiative to host a “History of Woman” exhibit from May 23, 2012 to June 23, 2012. Montage Initiative, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization headquartered in Bridgeport and London is dedicated to the development of women throughout the globe. The Quick Center’s stewardship of this relationship with Montage Initiative, is an important, multi-faceted collaboration. This exhibit can also be seen as one of the capstone events of the Quick Center’s involvement in the University’s Global Citizenship initiative.
Montage Initiative gives women around the world expanded opportunities to earn a sustainable living; contribute to their families and communities; and be part of a global network of positive change. The non-profit seeks to strengthen the connection between women’s economic empowerment and peace; creating a sustainable impact in eradicating extreme poverty; and making a lasting difference in the lives of women, their families, and communities around the world.
The art show, part of Montage’s “TAG” – Travelling Art Gallery – will show “The History of Woman” in the Thomas J. Walsh art gallery from mid-May through mid-June. The goal of TAG is to help artists create, exhibit and sell their work to gain a sustainable living and to raise funds, continuing the cycle of "Building Peace, One Woman At A Time." During this period, from June 11-15, 2012, Fairfield University is hosting the 3rd Biennial JUHAN (Jesuit Universities Humanitarian Action Network) Student Leadership Conference: Global Perspectives on Humanitarian Action. This will present a tremendous opportunity for the estimated 200 students, faculty and staff attending the conference from Jesuit Universities globally and nationally to visit the exhibit. A public opening reception has been scheduled to coincide with the conference and participants will be invited to attend this opening. A student poster show for the conference will also be on display at the Walsh Gallery during the History of Woman opening reception in June. A call for artists was issued on January 9, 2012 which included a special outreach to students. Students and faculty at Fairfield University will be encouraged to submit work to this important show.
The Quick Center’s collaboration with Montage Initiative builds on an already expanding relationship between Montage and the Fairfield University community. During the spring semester, Montage Initiative will host students as part of Professor Poli's IL 150: International Operations of Non-Profits. This course is a JUHAN-designated course and has a service learning component. Students from Professor Poli’s class will work with Montage Initiative throughout the semester to apply their studies in an NGO setting.
The main dates for the History of Woman art show and it’s installation at the Thomas J. Walsh art gallery are as follows:
o Install Artwork: May 21 (Mon), 22 (Tues), 23 (Wed) 2012
o Exhibition Dates: May 24 (Thurs) to June 23 (Sat) 2012
