Please join us for Eco|Femin|Isms, a free panel discussion hosted at OCAD University on Wednesday October 24th at 7pm, at 49 McCaul Street. This will be an opportunity to discuss eco arts practices with special guests including J.P King, Eco|Femin|Isms artist Marjan Verstappen, and Alia Weston. The Panel is moderated by Vicki Clough.

 

Ecofeminism, with its inception during Second Wave Feminism of the 1960s and 70s, was quickly sidelined due to an apparent lack of coherent vocabulary that could serve to unify emerging environmental considerations equitably. Contemporary Feminism, while not specifically ecological in intent and practice, allows for the multiplicity of voices that inherently illustrates the intersectional ways in which environmental issues have an effect on us all. 

Eco|Femin|Isms creates space for a range of creative practices that explore our relationship to the environment. 

The Panel is hosted in conjunction with the Eco|Femin|Isms Exhibition held at the White House Studio Project. The exhibition is curated by Vicki Clough, and features artwork by Tsēmā Igharas, Elyse Portal , Dana Prieto and Marjan Verstappen. Eco|Femin|isms showcases contemporary ecological considerations as they relate to culture, politics, spirituality and materialism and provides multiple entry points for critical dialogues that are both urgent and salient in contemporary society.
