I am the founder and director of WPI Festival On The Land, a 'Women's Performance Initiative' for women and girls to experience expressing themselves via their voices and instruments while on the land at 'WWTLC'. The original idea for WPI (Women's Performance Initiative) was born as a day vision while riding at Maybury State Park Mountain Bike Trail on my bike in 2018. The vision was a flood of ideas surrounding bringing a variety of performance opportunities to women, fusing other mediums of creativity with music. Little did I know that this vision was meant to begin with its first event at WWTLC (We Want The Land Coalition) in Hart, MI, where Michigan Womyn's Music Festival was held for 40 years. Laurie A.
