UPDATE: Guests may join us in person at 1700 Student Services Building OR via Zoom! Details for both options will be sent to all who register.
How do women and gender non-conforming artists who are Black, Indigenous, and people of color decide to use their creative skills to bolster social justice movements? How does their work engage racial and economic justice to imagine new possibilities with and for their local communities and beyond? How do they bring this work into the academy and vice-versa?
During Women’s History Month, the UIC Women’s Leadership and Resource Center is hosting dialogues with artists, activists, and educators to explore these questions and inspire new ways to work collectively toward a better world.
Join us for a conversation with artists and community activists Ashley Dequilla, Queen Hibbler, and Onyx about how their work brings visibility to reproductive and gender justice movements. This portion of the event will be hosted in person AND on Zoom!
The discussion will be followed by a screenprinting party for our in-person guests, featuring a custom design by one of the participating artists. Please bring a t-shirt, tote bag, poster, or other item to have screenprinted (we will have some shirts and bags available for free on a first-come, first-served basis).
Accessibility and food info:
- We ask that everyone attending in-person wear a mask to protect our community's health and safety.
- Captions will be provided for our Zoom attendees (we are hoping to secure CART live captioning, but, at a minimum, auto-captions will be turned on).
- Lunch will be available for takeaway at the end of the program.
- Building and suite accessibility info is available on our website.
If you have any questions or access requests, please contact us at email@example.com or (312) 413-1025.
