5 min read


Glassboro, NJ - January 8, 2024—The State of Fem Art, in collaboration with The Better Giveback Foundation Inc., proudly announces the second edition of its transformative artist residency SheROCKS with C.R.O.C. program, "Creative Oasis." Centered around the theme of mindful creativity, the residency will take place from March 20-23, 2024, in the heart of Glassboro, NJ, a vibrant college town steeped in the history of the glassmaking industry.

Building on the success of the inaugural program in March 2023, "Creative Oasis" is a 3-day immersive experience tailored for collegiate-age women artists. The residency, a collaboration between The Better Giveback Foundation, Inc.'s Creatives on Campus work-study program and The State of Fem Art's SheROCKS event program, aims to provide a unique blend of artistic expression, creative exploration, personal growth, business development, and community building.

In a joint statement, program founders Brittanie Thomas and Timea Faulkner said, "This program is an investment into the future of the arts. The ripple effect of mindful creativity extends beyond the residency, influencing the participants' artistic practices and, in turn, the broader creative community. We strive to foster a culture of mindful creativity that empowers collegiate-age women artists to unleash their full artistic potential."

"Creative Oasis" is designed to inspire and celebrate the fusion of mindfulness and creativity. Participants will embark on a journey of exploration, delving into the depths of their artistic selves. Through carefully curated workshops, discussions, and collaborative projects, the residency fosters an environment that encourages self-discovery and cultivating a deeper connection between art and mindfulness.

The residency culminates in an exhibition showcasing the participants' creations through visual and performance art  during Women's History Month. Attendees will get to explore a diverse array of thought-provoking, emotionally resonant artworks that embody the theme of mindful creativity by four creatives who have completed the residency.
