WoMen's Center

Go Titans!

Hey Beautiful people!

In case you're out of the loop, Rewrite Beautiful just visited Cal State Fullerton and did an awesome Street Art Workshop with the WoMen's Center on campus. Rewrite Beautiful was stoked to be there since 95% of the women who have eating disorders are between the ages of 12 and 25.5 (See source here.) The college newspaper, The Daily Titan featured a story on us! Check it out here...

Students use chalk to draw awareness to eating disorders

Cal State Fullerton students expressed themselves in chalk Tuesday in front of the Humanities Building to let the world know what beautiful really means.Irvina Kanarek, a CSUF alumna, founded the nonprofit organization Rewrite Beautiful to spread awareness and prevent eating disorders among females. Rewrite Beautiful uses “street art” to get its message out.

The street art project was based on a mind mapping diagram. She started with two central words on the floor of the Quad, “beauty” and “pain,” and participants branched off the writing with what those words mean to them. The words that came off the central theme also had words or phrases branching off them.

The central words were surrounded by a set of footprints that were in the shape of a heart.

One passerby, Brandon George, 23, saw the project and decided to take part. He wrote “nonexistent,” branching off the word “flaws.”

Hey Beautiful friends!

Lots of workshops in the month of September! We’re stoked to also announce that Rewrite Beautiful is partnering with the California State University, Fullerton's  WoMen's Center! Yeah! Rewrite Beautiful will be leading a Street Art Workshop on Tuesday, September 20th from 12pm to 1:30pm. We will be discussing our message that," Beautiful actually has nothing to do with the way you LOOK; it has to do with the way you ACT. Beauty is found in your actions of Creativity, Kindness and Strength displayed in your community. You can either go along with what everyone else thinks is beautiful, or you can be revolutionary and Rewrite Beautiful." The Street Art will be made with this theme in mind.

Everyone (man/boy/woman/girl/child and seeing eye dog) is welcomed to come and learn about Rewrite Beautiful, Street Art and eating disorders. *The Street Art will be displayed in the CSUF Quad at 1:15pm. To RSVP to the Street Art Workshop please see the Facebook invite HERE.
