BITE ME! Is a non profit arts, culture, media literacy and education organization. Its mission is to advance the public’s understanding of critical social justice issues pertaining to self discovery and identity through the body, representations and interpretations of body perceptions and body images. BITE ME! explores, challenges and redefines the contested “body beautiful” wrapped in our experiences of the provocative and the every day. Join us for a 3-day exploration of body and identity stories from near and far—stories set to challenge the limits of traditional body image dialogue by addressing multiple images—body images and experiences informed by diverse race, religious and cultural backgrounds, genders, sexualities, classes, ages, abilities, geographies and histories among other social identifiers. Everybody has a story.
VoluptuArt™ brings you art and gifts that will inspire you to celebrate your body. We all need images that say YES, my body is beautiful and good no matter what size, shape, age, color or gender. This is the place to find that inspiration.
