The Community Talk Table
The Community Talk Table brings together female artists, community leaders and educators to discuss the importance of women's cultural leadership, with emphasis on empowering women of colour.
Guests: Marlene Companion, Rebecca Moore, Annie Clair, All Nations Drum, Suzy Hansen, Tara Taylor, LaMeia Reddick, Folami Jones, Shari Clarke, Rebecca Faria, Hollaback Halifax, Maria Jose Yax-Frazer, Immigrant and Migrant Women's Association, Jane Gavin - Herbert, Avalon Sexual Assault Centre, Tamar Dina, Danika Vandersteen, Rebel Girl Rock Camp, mediated by Sylvia Hamilton.
Music Jam led by Womb Boom
Womb Boom is our pilot hip hop drumming program. A small group of women come together every week to explore drums and percussion. Womb Boom participants will lead a short jam for women and girls. Female musicians are encouraged to bring their instruments and voices to take part.
"That's My Instrument"
"That's My Instrument" is an interactive art project in which women and girls pose with instruments made available on the day. Our guest artists Sarah Hartland-Rowe and Tayla Fern Paul will draw and paint the portraits. Pending individual permission the images will become an online art exhibit as well as part of a bus ad campaign to encourage females to play musical instruments.
