3rd Annual WOMEN WHO ROCK unCONFERENCE, FILM FESTIVAL, & ARCHIVE LAUNCH
MARCH 9th, 2013, at Washington Hall!
INVITATION TO “ROCK THE ARCHIVE”
FEATURING Nobuko Miyamoto
We invite activists, scholars, musicians, performers, filmmakers, artists, and cultural producers, to gather for a celebration of the launch of the Women Who Rock Oral History Archive. The day-long launch will include: a participant-driven (un)Conference centered on dialogue about women, music, and social justice scenes; a community bazaar; children’s activities; a film festival featuring short films based on people in the archive; a keynote session with esteemed performer and long-time activist Nobuko Miyamoto; a conversation with Gretta Harley, Kitty Wu and Sheila Hardy; an evening open mic hosted by Youth Speaks, Uzuri Productions, and Feest; and a Fandango hosted by the Seattle Fandango Project. Taking into account issues of gender, race, ethnicity, class and sexuality, our goal throughout the day is to expand on “who” counts as women and “what” counts as rock. Guest scholars, writers, filmmakers, and panelists include: Tiffany Lopez, Tara McPherson, Sherrie Tucker, Deborah Vargas, Deborah Wong, Sheila Hardy, Gretta Harley, Kitty Wu, and Mako Fitts. Full schedule of activities is on the Website (unConference sessions will be available as they are proposed on the submissions pages – add an idea and check back to see what others are proposing).
