She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Art on My mind: Easeling bell hooks

When: Saturday, May 20, 1PM -4PM (*Note* This was originally scheduled in March, April)
Where: Seattle (exact location provided with ticket purchase)
Cost: $35; tickets and information here

Seattle/Black Feminist Library is celebrating none other than the amazing author, professor, feminist, and critical thinker, bell hooks, by each creating a trio of mini easels with canvas painting & mixed media designs. Each easel is hand-crafted and canvases each measures 3″ by 3″.

These arts and craft-type gatherings are a monthly event of the Seattle/Black Feminist Library that is hosted within the community and takes place on the second Saturday of each month, from noon-3pm. They 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.
This event is open to all. Light snacks, and non-alcoholic beverages are also available.

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.
