About the VWHE website banner:

In a workshop at the 2012 VWHE conference, a small group of women engaged in the group creative process of collaborative painting. Standing before a blank 4’x5’ canvas, participants began the two hour dance of silently communicating about and with the artistic process. What emerged was this painting and an opportunity to cooperate, collaborate and create with colleagues and friends.
