Feminisms Conference - looking backwards, moving forward: a weekend of connected activisms.
The goals of this conference are:
To link the past 30 years of feminist activism to the present and the future; to explore how we got to where we are today, what went before, and how that work has impacted social change.
To understand the interconnections between and among activist movements.
To create a space to network and create cohesiveness among activists; to organize and share resources; and to engage in skill-building, strategizing and grassroots activism.
To celebrate the link between arts, culture, food, music and activism.
To ignite individual and collective actions.
There will be a community activist space showing a range of videos including the A22 Bush Protest video, the story of the Peak Timber Sale as well as videos from the recent anti-war protests.
There will also be information and updates about various activist groups including Cascadia Summer, The Student Activist Alliance and Art and Revolution.
