We welcome proposals for a three-day international festival and conference of performances, exhibitions, academic papers & workshops.
We ask: Can feminist art* change the world and, if so, how?
And we invite responses from activists, artists and academics.

digital media :: podcasts :: dance :: performance :: painting :: puppetry :: textiles :: sketches :: pottery :: blogs :: cartoons :: novels :: comedy :: sculpture :: posters :: comics :: tweeting :: etc.
We welcome people new to presenting and performing as well as those with years of expertise and experience. 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!
Please send draft ideas asap, and full 300-word proposals for
papers, panels, exhibitions, workshops and performances, plus a
