"I’m the same age as the POTUS, which means I’ll turn 80 this year. The Gage Foundation wanted to do a birthday party for me, along with a late celebration of the 20th anniversary in 2020 of the Gage Foundation’s founding, which was postponed by COVID. I made up my birthday wish list and here it is. The 80-20 anniversary creates a unique opportunity to gather our collective memory of the Gage Foundation’s 22 years. Each one of you have a story of your aha moment when you “discovered” Gage, your anger that you hadn’t known about her, and then your setting about to make sure her visions and ideas are known. I lit the spark of the Gage Foundation but if it hadn’t caught fire we wouldn’t now be taught in Museum Studies classes and Gage wouldn’t be an essential part of women’s rights history. You are the fire. Some of you have done this through working with the Gage Foundation; some of you have created your own projects, and it is this collective memory that I would like to leave for the future. And so, for my birthday present, I want a short video from you – a snippet, a teaser, at least one story, which you can record easily and post on my birthday website. https://www.tribute.co/sally-and-matilda/ These videos will be playing during the birthday celebration July 10 and posted to our website after the event. For some of you, a short video won’t do. Your work could cover volumes. Start with the short video and then, if you like, record or write another, longer piece. Think of the richness of bringing together the stories of each person who has been sparked and sparked others – every one part of our flaming Gage movement sharing their piece of the story: why Gage speaks to us, why we have joined the Gage Foundation/movement and what we’ve done. Who could ask for a better birthday present? Thank you!"
