Pussycat Painting Party
When: March 8 2018
Where: New York, United States
Inspired by the Judy Chicago’s 1979 feminist piece called ‘The Dinner Party’, this event is a celebration of women throughout herstory.
It is a modern interpretation of the piece with a collaboration from the guests during the event.
Each guest will paint hers/his own plate signifying their perspective or ideology of what it means to be a woman today.
Guests will go home with their very own masterpiece (a white plate with acrylic paint), displaying their idea of feminism/womanism in the modern era.
During the event there will be performances by spoken word artists, singers and so forth. Come enjoy some tea, yummy food and good vibes.
About International Women's Day:
International Women's Day is powered by the collective efforts of all
Collective action and shared ownership for driving gender parity is what makes International Women's Day successful. Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist once explained "The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights." So make International Women's Day your day and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women.
