Feminist Organizing: Film screening and Q&A with Marlo De Lara

Join us for this event where we will uncover the challenges and possibilities of intersectional feminist organizing in the arts. 

The event will begin with a screening of Marlo De Lara’s Sister Outsider: How We Can Do Better for Tomorrow, followed by a Q&A with Marlo De Lara, Nicole Raymond (NikNak) and Elspeth Mitchell.

About the event

While the festivals and associated projects that arise from self-named feminist arts collectives and organizations are admired and recognized, Sister Outsider: How We Can Do Better For Tomorrow will provide the unsaid histories of working with such theoretical frameworks and practice. In short, the film aims to pull back the curtain and serve as a guide.

In several conversations with cultural workers, artists, and organizers, the evolution and process to fruition will be revealed in dialogue and with camaraderie to evidence how intersectional feminist arts organizing is a dynamic living and breathing entity unto itself.

By speaking about navigating obstacles, retrospectively identifying challenges surmounted, and most importantly the actual lived experience of doing and making, these talks can provide suggestions for further feminist projects to take hold and possibly more traction at the intersection of social justice and arts and culture for future programming.
