On International Women’s Day we celebrate all that feminist movements around the world have fought for and achieved. We also look forward, collectively imagining what a more feminist future would look like. And what better way to envision and create that future than with the arts? As bell hooks says: “The function of art is to do more than tell it like it is – it’s to imagine what is possible.”
And for the first International Women’s Day of the new decade, we’re going all out: this Feminist Festival we’re celebrating feminist artists and activists all weekend long.
How many women artists can you think of, actually? Watch this one-minute video to hear what other people said!
We invite you to join us on March 8th at the Mama Cash Feminist Festival in locations throughout the Netherlands: Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, BAK basis voor actuele kunst, Utrecht, and WORM in Rotterdam. Don’t want to wait until Sunday to start the celebrations? Then you can make your way to the dance floor at one of our kick-off parties on March 7th in Radio Radio (Amsterdam) or WORM (Rotterdam)!
Join us to challenge the status quo with visual art, music and performance. To celebrate the work of women artists who are pursuing their dreams and goals. To create a space of connection, joy, support (and of course, dancing) that will exist not just for a weekend but continue to grow year-round.
