For the Birds is excited to announce we’ll be presenting a workshop titled “Winging It: Nurturing Authentic Communication in Feminist Organizing” at this year’s Ladyfest Philadelphia! Join us on Saturday, June 8, from 1:15pm-2:15pm at Locust Moon Comics and Movies near 40th Street and Ludlow Street in West Philly. The event is an activism, music and arts festival running from June 7-9.
In this participatory workshop, For the Birds will guide a community discussion about internal and external struggles in feminist cultural and social justice organizing, creating feminist spaces, and coalition building. The workshop will discuss commonalities between marginalized and activist groups, such as the ways our efforts coalesce around issues like safer spaces, grassroots modes of organizing, and artistic and political visibility.
Ladyfest Philadelphia’s Mission Statement
Ladyfest Philadelphia is a grassroots event dedicated to the artistic, organizational, and political work of cis-women, trans, genderqueer, intersex, and queer people, and their allies. Ladyfest combats substantive, cultural, and structural inequalities by building upon the existing Philadelphia community of artists, musicians, and activists. It aims to foster a more inclusive and safe environment through performances, workshops, panels, opportunities for collaboration, and more.
