It's never to early to start thinking about Broad Ideas 2022!

Hopefully you will join our adventure as we march forth into year 5... 

                                                                          (Spoiler, our Opening will be March 4, 2022.  We're punny!)


WE WANT TO INCLUDE YOU!  All genders, ages, and abilities encouraged to submit work and be a part of our show.  

Work should somehow include your story, the telling of a woman’s story, or touch on the idea of Resilience.  While feminism is always our overarching theme, this year’s prompt if in need of inspiration is Resilience.   

For additional submission details, go to the Submissions tab.


A little background: Broad Ideas is a feminist art show that happens every March at the Galena Center for the Arts.  Started in 2018, it continues to be a space for womens' stories, told through visual art, the written word, music, and performance.  Broad Ideas purposely includes a wide range of ideas, artists, abilities, and events.  Simply put, this show is for anyone that supports women, inclusion, equity, and the arts.  The celebration continues in 2022 and we hope you will be a part of it.

Broad Ideas - We are the ones we've been waiting for.

The shows’ first opening was March 2, 2018 with additional events throughout the duration of this show, including a special Songwriters Showcase, yoga, Women's HERstory night, a spoken word closing, etc. 


March 2019 again offered a myriad of events including the Opening, Silent Sky table reading, a special Songwriter's Showcase, and a jam packed Spoken Word closing that really was a variety show of talents! 

Broad Ideas 2020 was able to host our Opening, Broad Strokes (a painting night), and 1 night of our play "Love, Loss, and What I Wore" before the COVID-19 pandemic shut us down.  

2021 got creative and went virtual.  Events included a B.Y.O.B. Opening via Zoom (Be Your Own Broad), a Songwriters Showcase via YouTube, restorative yoga also on Zoom, and our Broad Intentions installation project. 


It is our hope that it will be safe to hold our show and events in-person in 2022, but at this point, all info, dates, and plans are subject to change.  We appreciate your understanding and flexibility.  Click here to see calendar of events.

You are NOT alone!
