Panel Discussion: What Is Feminism Now? Art and Activism
November 8, 2017 at 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This panel will bring together a diverse team of community activists and artists to address the vitality of work on behalf of women’s, trans, and queer empowerment through responses to the question, What is Feminism Now? The event will create new space for the sharing of ideas and mutual respect on campus about the historic roots of feminism and what relevance this has today for our student body as active members of their communities and creative thinkers.
The event will feature a panel of activists and artists who will share their current work addressing the modern place of feminism in art and activism. A Q&A will follow the discussion. The program is set up to be inclusive; our panelists and authors work with diverse cultures, races, ethnicities, gender identities and socioeconomic classes. Our collaborators bring many years of experience in their fields to the conversation. Their experiences—in community organizing, craftivism, drag performance, writing with their communities and feminist artistic and political traditions—will bring a diverse range of voices to start a dialogue about this timely question. Panelists will include Betsy Greer, Sarah Corbett, Buzz Slutsky, Gale Zucker and Rose Gorman. (See their bios here.)
This project will introduce students to a broad range of voices and experiences that they might not otherwise have access to, creating a much needed space on campus for dialogue among students, faculty, and staff.
A reception will follow directly after the event. Click here for more information about What Is Feminism Now?
