Feminism is for Everybody
516 Arts is doing March's Women in Creativity programming right. One example of which is Saturday's panel, Women Artists Speak Out: Feminism and Creative Expression, which will provide a forum for women to discuss their experiences in the arts—everything from journalism to contemporary dance. Panelists include woman at various points in their careers, and even a visiting artist from Poland. Get in on the discussion totally free-of-charge between 4 and 6pm. (Maggie Grimason)

An intergenerational, international and interdisciplinary public forum of women who work in a variety of art forms including visual art, theatre, dance, performance art, writing and journalism.
In celebration of the citywide celebration Women & Creativity 2017, 516 ARTS presents an inter-generational, international and interdisciplinary public forum of women who work in a variety of art forms including visual art, theatre, dance, performance art, writing and journalism. Each of them has a story to tell about being a woman artist today, and each artist’s lineage is from different places and times in women’s history. This gathering creates an opportunity to ask, “What can we learn from one another’s experiences? How do our experiences emerge from those of our mothers and grandmothers? What can we imagine for the next generation?”
Everyone is invited to contemplate the past, present and future of art and feminism with a special line-up, including: ERIN GALVEZ, an emerging visual artist whose work is on view in the UNM graduate exhibition at 516 ARTS; DAGMARA ZABSKA, a mid-career theatre artist from Poland who is a visiting artist for Tricklock Company’s Revolutions International Theatre Festival; KELSEY PASCHICH, a mid-career dancer and choreographer who is the co-founder of SHIFT I DANCE festival; DORIS DIFARNECIO, a mid-later career performance artist and activist; and MARGARET RANDALL, a later-career literary artist and activist; with moderator MEGAN KAMERICK, a radio, TV and print journalist who focuses on women’s issues.
