FLOW | The Menstruation Exhibition


  • THEMUSEUM 10 King Street West Kitchener, ON, N2G 1A3 Canada (map)

HEALTHY CONVERSATION, PERIOD.

Dates: March 6th – May 28th, 2019

Join THEMUSEUM in discovering, discussing, and destigmatizing the natural process of menstruation through dialogue, art and a healthy dose of reality. In partnership with Diva International Inc., maker of the DivaCup, a global company headquartered in Waterloo Region who have revolutionized the menstrual care industry, we’re ready to showcase all things FLOW. Yours and ours.

FLOW | The Menstruation Exhibition is a collection of installations that tackles the taboo topic of monthly bleeding and reproductive health in a setting that removes the unnecessary shame from this important discussion. By destigmatizing the conversation surrounding an integral part of many people’s lives, FLOW will educate, create connections and transform perceptions. 

Curated by Virginia Eichhorn, FLOW features a variety of artistic media including installation, performance, dance, paint and embroidery. With menstruation as muse, the artists have challenged themselves to create pieces that are reflective and address ideas and attitudes that relate to contemporary society. It’s all about menstruation beginning this March at THEMUSEUM.

FLOW | The Menstruation Exhibition is included with the price of admission.

BE A PART OF THE CONVERSATION. 

We are in search of personal stories that we can showcase as a part of FLOW: The Menstruation Exhibition as we work to destigmatize this taboo topic.

By answering questions such as “What was your first period experience like?” and “Do you have any advice related to menstrual health?” you will help us gather diverse perspectives and tackle this topic of monthly bleeding and reproductive health in a setting that removes the unnecessary shame from this important discussion. By destigmatizing the conversation surrounding an integral part of many people’s lives, FLOW will educate, create connections, and transform perceptions.

Your story contributions could come in the form of audio or video recordings, these stories would then be displayed as a part of our exhibition to provide a face and voice to the experiences shared. 

If you wish to remain anonymous, that is okay. 

Alternatively, you can provide a written account of your story and we, at THEMUSEUM, can anonymously voice that for you.

If you would like to participate, please review the Personal Story Request below and submit your video, audio or written story file, along with the signed Release Form to info@THEMUSEUM.ca.
