Drawing from the strategies of feminism, science fiction, and social utopianism, Feminist Land Art Retreat’s exhibition Free Rein proposes an alternate world in which land and gender relations exist without ownership or hierarchies. To engage more deeply with these ideas, we will spend this season reading the anthology The Feminist Utopia Project: Fifty-Seven Visions of a Wildly Better Future.

Register at the Gallery or by phone at 250.377.2400. Early registration is encouraged and rewarded: the first 4 participants to register will receive a free copy of the book.

STATUS QUO? THE UNFINISHED BUSINESS OF FEMINISM IN CANADA

Feminism has shaped the society we live in. But just how far has it brought us? How relevant is it today? In this documentary award winning filmmaker Karen Cho focuses on key concerns such as violence against women, access to abortion and universal childcare, asking how much progress we have truly made on these issues. Rich with archival material and startling current stories, Status Quo? is thought provoking and moving.

Art+Feminism is a global do-it-yourself and do-it-with-others campaign teaching people of all gender identities and expressions to edit Wikipedia with the goal of improving content on cis and trans women, the arts and feminism on Wikipedia. Join us at the downtown branch of the Kamloops Library for an all-day communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to gender, art and feminism.

We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, childcare and refreshments. Bring your own laptop—or borrow one of ours—and your ideas for entries that need updating or creating. For the editing-averse, we urge you to stop by to show your support.

RSVP in advance for childcare. Please stop by the Gallery or contact us by phone at 250.377.2400.

We invite people of all gender identities and expressions to participate, particularly transgender and cisgender women.

Want to get started early? Join us for one of our drop-in learn-to-edit sessions. No registration is required, just bring your laptop or tablet and your enthusiasm! Please note, we will not have laptops available for loan at these sessions.

Thursday, February 20 // 6:00 to 8:00 pm
