SNEAK PEEK: Alumnae Roz Hunter & Kate Wadkins, with Sarah Hanks & Lauren Denitzio, “Supporting the Scene: Creating and Curating A Feminist Safer Space”

Roz Hunter, Kate Wadkins, Sarah Hanks, and Lauren Denitzio host a panel that discusses their work in New York-based “For the Birds,” a feminist social justice group and arts-based collective. Through For the Birds, they have curated art and music shows, promoted community networking, and disseminated feminist information; this paper thus discusses the ways that gender informs their curatorial practice and their understanding of “safer spaces.” As feminists, they have looked to both the theorists and activists before them to guide their feminist praxis, and they hope this panel will be part of a larger, round-table discussion.

They will present at 4:30pm on Saturday March 3rd, 2012 in Heimbold Visual Arts Center.
