SPECIAL TALK: PUSH/PUSHBACK — 9 Steps to Make a Difference with Art and Activism

with the Guerrilla Girls on Tour

Donna Kaz was an aspiring actress until she pulled a gorilla mask over her head and became Aphra Behn of the Guerrilla Girls. Guerrilla Girls on Tour are feminist activist artists dedicated to generating a conversation about the current state of women in the arts. In this humorous and enlightening interactive talk, Aphra Behn details how the actions of one person can push against the status quo. The talk culminates in a motivational step-by-step conclusion to inspire audience members to think of themselves as citizen artists who have the power to change the world!
Free admission. Co-sponsored with the UVM Women’s Center.

NOTE: There is a free related workshop on Monday, October 29, from 6-8:30 pm at The Galleries at The Hive Studios, 420 Pine Street in Burlington’s South End Arts District. To register and for more information, contact Jen Berger at: jb4pax@yahoo.com
