I AM HERE is about how women find and maintain their sense of belonging in our changing rural landscape. Lead Artist Ruth Chase is eliciting perspectives through the use of social media, public art-making salons, a short film, and a culminating interactive public installation called I AM HERE. I AM HERE is a community conversation - a way to connect, explore and empower.

The City of Nevada City expressed its support for I AM HERE at the time of Nevada County Arts Council’s application to California Arts Council’s Artists in Communities Program. Catrina Olson, City Manager, wrote: “The City of Nevada City is preparing to mark one hundred years since the signing of the 19th Amendment. This is relevant to all of us, in that it gave women the freedom to vote. It was in Nevada City, forty-two years prior to the passing of the amendment that a Nevada City resident, Ellen Sargent, formed a vital part of a core team that introduced the 29 words that would later become the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.'
