This Call to Action invites self-defined queer folks on femme/inine spectrums to get together during the week of Jan 15-21, 2012 to share and generate ideas and information about their work [femme-related and otherwise]; to spark conversations, build alliances, celebrate each other, have fun — and instigate the January launch of the Calls for Performers and Workshop Proposals for the Femme 2012 Conference, taking place in Baltimore Aug 17-19, 2012.
There is a Femme Week of Action toolkit available here with tons of topics, ideas, vision, and event suggestions.
You’re invited to create event[s] that suit the many communities of femmes and femme/inine spectrum folks in your city/town/etc., that allow groups to talk to each other, ask to ally with each other, celebrate and share with each other. The organizers in NYC offer our work for inspiration, and encourage each community to adjust as needed. This toolkit is intended to help make your organizing easier, and not to restrict your ideas or needs. If something else works better — do it!
Events are already in the works January 15, 2012 in NYC and January 20, 2012 in SF.
Planning an event? Announce it on the Femme Collective Facebook page and/or email us at femmecollectivemedia [at] gmail.com — we’ll let folks on our email list and facebook know about your event via announcements in early and mid January; and we’re working on setting up pages to host *your* livestreaming!!!
Not going to a January event and want to support the Femme 2012 Conference? Attend in August, submit proposals, help your friends/allies get to the conference, or donate! We’re all-volunteer and every $ helps.
