Joy & Dissent: A Gathering of Providence’s Feminists & Witches @ AS220 Main Stage
Jan 23 @ 9:00 pm – Jan 24 @ 1:00 am

Screen Shot 2019-01-04 at 1.29.07 PM

Nothing is more powerful and needed right now than joy & dissent. This evening we will gather together to mingle and meet with open souls to hear

a variety of poetry, song, film and soapboxing of strong feminist voices within our community. Throughout history, feminist assemblings have been viewed as a threat and dissent of the “status quo.” This status quo continues to oppress us all. Moving forward as a society, collaborative models and feminist practices MUST be woven into our community structures. We must care and look after one another.


Passionate, emotional and  transformative collective joy in our community can create radical dissent that can begin to dismantle the matrix of oppression.To begin to achieve these goals we will come together as a community to celebrate our vast identities and creative expressions.
Performers include Grace Goodrich, Theodora Walsh, Joyce Kutty. Activities include Zine making & Soapboxing.

Live Bait! Thin Ice @ AS220 Main Stage
Feb 1 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Thin Ice

As February comes nipping at our heels, with its dreaded cold and snowy calamities, Live Bait feels that we would all do well with a break. Let us get our minds off the chill, as we sip our drinks and listen to stories of being on “Thin Ice.” For that, friends, is February’s theme.

If you have a true story that in some way, shape or form fits this theme, come to Live Bait, put your name in the fishbowl and, when called, come up and tell it. Remember, please: no notes, no rants, no aimless ramblings, no stand-up routines, and there is a six-minute time limit. Of course, all are more than welcome to simply sit back and listen.

Live Bait is hosted by Phil Goldman, with banter, musical accompaniment and monthly theme song by Jerry “The Professor” Gregoire.
