What's the BIG IDEA?

The Arts Bring Us Together in Conversation.

SVMoA takes a unique multidisciplinary approach to programming. Three or four times annually BIG IDEA projects ask timely questions and investigate them through art, music, theatre, conversation, and workshops. We believe that by engaging with art through a variety of mediums, we can transform our understanding not only of the arts, but also of history, culture, place, and even ourselves. You can participate in a single event or go deeper, exploring the idea through different lenses.

Deeds Not Words: Women Working for Change

January 8 - April 16, 2021

Coinciding with the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States’ constitution, which gave some women the right to vote, Deeds Not Words celebrates the many ways—both seen and unseen—that women have worked for social change. The project takes its title from the slogan of British suffragettes, who decided that direct action, rather than rhetoric alone, was necessary in order to secure women’s suffrage. The project looks back at some surprising history (including Idaho’s decision to grant women suffrage in 1896, making it one of the earliest states to do so), and also at the way women give voice to power today.
