Womxn’s Creative Industries Meet Up: Art as Creative Resistance
April 21, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Womxn’s Creative Industries Meet Up is an interactive event focused on intergenerational resource-sharing between media makers, centered on young womxn of color. We use “womxn” with an “x” to signify inclusivity of all womxn who identify along the gender identity spectrum, including trans and genderqueer womxn, and all intersecting identities.
Media arts can be used as a means of creative resistance. Our featured presenters are local artivists who have crafted specific social justice narratives and movements within their communities. There will be time for you to engage in dialogue with presenters and other attendees to gain meaningful insight, connections, and mentorship relationships that last beyond the event.
We will have a resource area where arts organizations and all attendees can leave promotional materials and contribute to the resource wall, where you can identify your requests or offerings for support and leave contact info to connect with others on projects. These collective resources are digitized and shared with participants so you have a network of resources to explore after leaving the event.
We believe that centering the voices of the most underrepresented identities in creative industries (folks who identify as womxn of color, black, indigenous, queer, disabled, immigrant, refugee, low-income) will lead to the dismantling of systemic oppression and the liberation of people of all identities. Our event welcomes folks of all ages and identities to join the conversation.
Accessible admission is free, with variable ticket levels for all income levels.
All ages, wheelchair accessible venue, childcare provided.
Professional childcare is provided at this event – in order to make sure we can accommodate your children, please register for the event and then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating the number and ages of children who require care, as well as any questions you may have.
