The New Girls Club: Womxn Shaping Rural Futures
Produced by Rural Arts Weekly and Springboard for the Arts
Description: Womxn (a term that includes trans, femme-identifying and non-gender binary community members) have historically taken a backseat to “old boys clubs” in rural power structures, organizing efforts, and movements for change...even as those movements benefit from our labor and genius. This 75-minute participatory session (led by three fierce female rural arts administrators) will introduce a variety of regional perspectives, challenges, resources, and tested strategies for shifting our organizations―and the communities they serve―towards equity with humor, acuity, compassion, and style. This is an inclusive session: people of all genders, ages, ethnicities, and degrees of ability are welcome.
