Indigenous Feminisms March Meeting
Free! All woman-identified Indigenous* people welcome.
Facilitated by Sylvia Dreaver
For this month's meeting we will be attending a panel discussion, " Matters of Representation in Art Institutions" at the University of Manitoba School of Art.
In conjunction with Noor Bhangu's investigation in the lack of representation regarding women of colour in the school's collection, Bhangu has put a call out for artwork from members self-identifying as QTBIPOC - Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, People of Colour which will culminate in an exhibition in April.
The talk is from 4-6pm and if anyone is interested we can certainly continue the dialogue back at MAWA after the event. Hope to see you all there!
Indigenous Feminisms endeavours to be a space for critical dialogue related to Indigenous feminism, traditional knowledge and how it connects to Indigenous artistic practices. Be a part of the ongoing conversation and help shape the direction of this dynamic new group. Activities could include analysis of readings, gallery-going, critique, collaborative art projects, interventions and activism and will be determined by the participants.
