On the weekend of March 28th-30th, we will be holding a collectively self-organized women-lead event called “Yeah, That’s What She Said.” at Specials on C on 12th St and Ave C. The event will include an all women’s art show, with self-referential, self-representational and confessional artwork. Throughout the weekend, we will hold both by-donation (no one turned away!)arts programming that is open to the public, and sliding-scale (no one turned away!) arts and educational programming exclusively for women. We’re looking for all women (especially working class women, women of color, trans women and queer women) who are interested in building an experimental, intersectional feminist event. Please fill out the following survey so we know how to best get you involved. You can show art, facilitate a workshop, sell stuff, support logistically or be a part of organizing the event. The event organizers will contact you within a week with a formal invitation of involvement based on your interest and collective need. Let’s do this!
Are you a woman who’s interested in creating an amazing space for us to teach one another, creatively explore, and showcase our work? We’re looking for all women (especially working class women, women of color, trans women and queer women) who are interested in building an experimental, intersectional feminist event for Women’s History Month at Specials on C in the Lower East Side on the weekend of March 28-30th.
“Yeah, That’s What She Said” is a weekend-long space of collectively self-organized sliding scale (no one turned away!) arts programming and community events by and for women. There will be by-donation events that are open to the entire public, as well as sliding-scale workshops that are exclusively women’s spaces. If you’d like to get involved, please take the time to fill out this survey here so we can see where you want to get in!
We are looking for:
ARTISTS: “Yeah, That’s What She Said” will be showing confessional, self-representational or self-referential art by women. This isn’t just self portraiture: socio-political work, or work that reflects on “The Personal is Political” is highly encouraged.
FACILITATORS: We’ll be holding creative workshops for women and are looking for proposals. So far, we’ve got drawing, poetry and political education workshops. Workshops will be held for 1.5-3 hours on Saturday and Sunday (March 29th and 30th).
ORGANIZERS: We need help with lots of different aspects of this event, from outreach, promotion, design, web and coordination.
VOLUNTEERS: We’ll need a hand with logistical concerns, like working door and installing/striking the show.
VENDORS: Do you make something awesome that you’d like to sell at “Yeah, That’s What She Said?” We’re listening.
