She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Audre Lorde Guided Paint Session

When: Sat, April 29, 12PM – 3PM
Where: U-District, Seattle, WA 98105 (exact location provided with ticket confirmation)
Cost: $35; buy tickets here

Join the Seattle Black Feminist Library to celebrate Black, feminist, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet, Audre Lorde at the close of International Black Feminist Poetry Month. This guided session will be faciliated by Kelli Wimbly-Dinh. Learn more about Wimbly-Dinh’s work here:http://www.kwthriving.com/. Each participant will create and take with them this 12×12 canvas painting.

Gatherings such as these are based solely on ideas of Black feminism and Black feminist theories, and introduces you to, or furthers your understanding and overall appreciation of, Black feminism, through a new activity that is introduced each month. These can include games, films, and arts and crafts. This means that all activities center Black feminist perspectives while having fun, meeting new people, and connecting with others who share similar interests — including sipping wine in the afternoon. There is no artistic experience, special training or skills needed to participate. Sessions are guided and instructed, and all material and supplies are provided – you take what you make.

Bring your favorite Lorde quote with you.

Light snacks and wine (must be 21+) will be provided.

If you are a Black woman, and being able to participate in this activity because of its cost is causing you a hardship, then please contact SBF.

All ages welcome to learn & create (white people too).

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
