3-5 March 2011, York, UK
We welcome proposals for a three-day festival and conference of presentations, performances, exhibitions, academic papers & workshops.
The carnival is designed to offer a huge variety of activities, from zine workshops to art exhibitions; from skill sharing to band showcases; from open mic sessions to scripted plays; from radical stitching to interactive installations; from comedy to academic papers.
We welcome people new to presenting and performing as well as those with years and decades of expertise and experience.
We ask: can feminist art* change the world and, if so, how? and we invite responses from activists, artists and academics.
The event is designed to generate action as well as debate, and to inspire, celebrate & challenge understandings of women, grassroots art & politics.
It is a deliberately open invitation - surprise us!
We welcome provisional ideas as well as full proposals. Please send draft ideas asap, and full 300-word proposals for papers, panels, exhibitions, workshops and performances plus a 50-word biography, by 31 October 2010.
