Woman Fest was founded to Weave the Sisterhood back together.
These times call for it, now more than ever.
We, as a 10 women strong not-for-profit Co-operative, hold a container where any woman can come and any woman can share, based around 6 simple principles ----->
As a Radical Participation festival, we try to rewrite the story that's been written for us for too long - gone is the transactional relationship (I pay for this and therefore I expect to be entertained), gone are the have and have nots (volunteers and ticket holders). We centralise the festival around the community that shows up for it. Which means we all input to create the gathering - whether you're happy to help park cars for 2 hours, or you have a song to sing, or something to teach, maybe you're an artist and want to showcase your work, or maybe you want to help make the food: Everyone is the festival, and we honour every part it.
WomanFest is made by those who show up, we don't pick acts, teachers or Ceremony holders. We don't curate. We make sure there's the space and it's up to ALL of us to fill it, with what we want to bring to world. It's a place to practise being radically yourself, whatever that looks like.
So come, sister, what's YOUR gift?
See you in the field xxxxx
A cheeky look into some of our minds when we tire of the Spiritual talk ;) ........
"I think what we need to do is to understand feminism as a prerequisite to saving the environment, to ending war, to ending racism. We need to understand that feminism is not for women, it's for humanity" - Ani DiFranco
