The Further We Roll, The More We Gain closes on Dec. 4, 2020 on Facebook Live!


JOIN MAKE ART WITH PURPOSE (MAP) on Facebook Live at the closing of MAP2020: The Further We Roll, The More We Gain, a festival produced in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.

Janeil Engelstad

MAP seized the occasion of this centennial anniversary to critically examine various aspects of the 19th Amendment, such as the role of women of color in the movement, as well as who was allowed to vote and who was not, according to race and other factors. In this virtual salon, moderated by Janeil Engelstad, eight of the nineteen participating artists will talk about the flags they designed that celebrate a woman or connect to the festival themes.

MAP Founding Director Janeil Engelstad, is an American artist and curator whose work focuses on the role of the arts and design in addressing social and environmental concerns. She is a 2006 Fulbright Scholar to the Slovak Republic.

It is well documented that women, especially women of color, are under-represented in the arts. While there is nearly a 50/50 split in the number of female working artists and number of MFAs earned, 25% of projects and exhibitions are produced by women, 4% by women of color. Using the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment, MAP 2020 will be a festival that provides funding and space for female artists and also proposes ideas and actions for the sustainability of this effort over the long term.

A weekend invitation, full of art
