Womanspace and Jhoole are hosting our second annual “Experience India” fundraising event right here, inviting you to support our collaboration for women’s empowerment. This multi-faceted, virtual event will be available for the whole month of March, Women's History Month. Explore at your own leisure. Thank you for supporting us in our vital mission of empowering women!
Our Experience India Committee designed and curated a vast array of programs related to Indian culture including dance, music, henna, cooking, meditation, academic presentations and more! Many of the performers and facilitators are from the local Rockford Indian community. We are so excited to showcase their amazing talents and those of all our contributors from across the world. The majority of our programs are available for free to highlight the beauty and diversity of Indian culture right here on this page! You can also purchase a ticket for our virtual "Premium Programs", including a few that are interactive and "live", to support Jhoole, Womanspace and our vital mission of empowering women!
As part of this event, we have launched The Labyrinth Collection! You can pre-order one-of-a-kind items, each one slightly different due to the nature of hand-dying and block-printing. This pandemic friendly athleisure wear has been lovingly co-designed by artists from Womanspace and Jhoole. This collection uniquely fuses traditional Indian handicraft techniques with modern, edgy and comfortable silhouettes. Every piece is hand-dyed, block-printed, cut and sewn at Jhoole in Maheshwar, India as an integral part of our mission to support women attaining economic independence.
We have curated over 150 interesting things to bid on including items and experiences related to India and women's empowerment in our Experience India Auction. There are alluring works of art, a variety of handcrafted items, jewelry, experiences, gorgeous sarees and more! Please bid and share! Such a win-win, as you can find something one-of-a-kind to love while supporting a good cause.
No better way to really bring the Experience India event to life than watching our vast array of incredible programs while you savor a delectable Indian meal! If you are in the Rockford area, or plan to visit Rockford, you can even eat delicious, flavorful cuisine at House of India to support us. Buy a gift card that is valid until March 2022 and 30% of proceeds will go to Womanspace, Jhoole and our work empowering women here and abroad. Eat there or get carryout!
