“…breaking down the usual divisions between categories like art and social activism is liberating, energizing and consciousness-raising for both: art can escape its ivory tower, and activism can be more creative. Utopia rises in the visionary distance.” – Ken Johnson, NYTimes
Women on Waves, featuring Vessel footage, is included in CreativeTime’s exhibit “Living as Form” now showing at Historic Essex Street Market through October 16th. The exhibit explores 20 years worth of socially engaged art. Read the NYTimes review here.

Very excited to announce that Abigail Disney has come on board as Vessel’s executive producer! Ms. Disney, filmmaker and philanthropist, “has a longtime passion for women’s issues and peacebuilding that culminated in her first film, the acclaimed PRAY THE DEVIL BACK TO HELL, about the Liberian women who peacefully ended their country’s fourteen-year civil war. She is currently Executive Producer of the groundbreaking PBS mini-series WOMEN, WAR & PEACE, the most comprehensive global media initiative ever mounted on the role of women in peace and conflict. Her work in philanthropy, women’s engagement and leadership, and conflict resolution has been recognized through the Epic Award from the White House Project, the Changing the Landscape for Women Award from the Center for the Advancement of Women, and the prestigious International Advocate for Peace (IAP) Award from the Cardozo Law School’s Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution.”
The themes explored in Ms. Disney’s work have undeniable crossover into the need for safe access to abortion on a global scale, and the Vessel crew is thrilled to be working with her! More to come…
