Tuesday, March 22  2:00pm-3:30pm
Toronto, York University
The Centre for Women and Trans People, at York University, Room 322 in the Student Centre.
facebook event, here!

The rumours are true… Audre Lorde, Andrea Smith and other big time feminists are coming to celebrate the new changes in our resource library! …well their books will be there! Meet new people and check our new zines on chronic pain, comics on queer childhoods, fiction by queer people of colour, beginner guides to sex and disability, and so much more! Learn about creating a membership, our workshop series and our upcoming summer radical reading group. There will be a free lunch: Resource Library Launch Party between 12-2pm on Tuesday March 22nd!!!. Come for the lunch…stay for the books. Afterwards join us for a free art workshop featuring Coco Riot, author of Llueven Queers.

Using their own experience as a queer zinester, visual artist and outreach coordinator of the socially-engaged artist-run centre articule (Montreal), Coco Riot will share their stories on how to be a proud successful queer artist. Creating self-representing art within an anti-oppression framework, Coco Riot has toured, exhibited and talk about their art in Contemporary Art museums, Squatt Centres, Ladyfests, Video-art galleries and friends’ living rooms all around Europe and North America. Their work has been published in contemporary art magazines and queer and feminist zines. And all of these are equally meaningful to them.
In a political culture that has promoted a separation between art and organizing, how can we do to jump the gap and be political artists and artist organizers? What does it mean to create political art? Is it ok to earn money with your art? What are the process, the questions, the tools, the media, the struggles, the resources and the support we may encounter on our way?
