Femmetopia Festival: Deeds not Words

23 - 28 MAY 2018

BUY FESTIVAL PASS

>> Come down to VFD for 5 days of performance, workshops, discussions, dance, calls to action, screenings, interventions, exhibitions, films, music and parties. <<

This spring we will gather in a femme-led celebration of intersectional collective power. We will carry forward the mantle of revolutionaries, rioters, disruptors, fighters and protestors as we advance our voices together. Let us discover new ways to break the oppressive norms of society, of history and of art.

With our events we seek to disturb the masses and smash the restrictive yokes of society. We invite you to come and shatter binary limitations into a million tiny shards under your high-shine stilettos, squelch the entrails of late-capitalism under your scuffed-up trainers, stomp in your big black boots over the face of the patriarchy and dance with us towards our shared femmetopian future.

Get ready to join the forces of intersectional queers and allies, radical femmes and fabulous freaks as we stand side by side to experience insurrectional imaginings, heretic debates, mutinous dreaming, pornographic rebellions and wanton pleasures.
