Joy & Dissent: A Gathering of Providence’s Feminists & Witches

January 23, 2019 @ 9:00 pm – January 24, 2019 @ 1:00 am
AS220 Main Stage
115 Empire Street


Performers include Ilyrus Evander, Muggs Fogarty, Grace Goodrich, Joyce Kutty, Nika Lomazzo, Annaka Olsen, and Theodora Walsh.

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.
