Herstory (How it all Began...)

Celebration of Change was born in 1983 when a bunch of women envisioned a live production that would bring together women to share music, poetry, drama, art, dance, humor and spirituality. It was meant to be a one-time gig, but the community enjoyed it so much that a group, named 15% because a study said homosexuals represented 15 percent of the population, organized and made Celebration an annual event. 15% underwent radical changes and Celebration almost ended, however, by this time a new crop of women wanted to continue the tradition. And so Radical Arts for Women (RAW) was created. RAW produced Celebration of Change in 1996, and today the event is an annual fundraiser for RAW. Through the years, Celebration has undergone many changes and will continue to evolve with the community; if you have a vision, please consider joining the Celebration Committee next year or getting involved with RAW.
