Bona Dea at (Sm)art Festival 21 online
February 20, 2021 @ 8:00 am - February 21, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
This is a free online event showcasing up and coming artists across a wide range of disciplines. The idea was founded by Ralph Overbeck and his vision for the creative Arts and the link to the annual Arts festival in Spoleto, Italy.
In November 2019 I was awarded a residency at Casale Flaminia as Writer in Residence. A wonderful 10 days of working alongside Melissa Hekkers and Adi Adassi. They are also part of this first venture.
I will be sharing my work with the Roses and Divine Feminine and the story of connection with the Sanctuary of Bona Dea at Casale Flaminia nr Spoleto where there is a Sacred Forest dedicated to Bona Dea (The Good Goddess) and a story that evolved during my stay there.
Bona Dea was a revered Goddess in Rome. She had a Temple in the Aventurine Hills and a Sanctuary in Acquaiura. She was of course an aspect of Sisterhood of the Rose 🌹
