7 – 10PM Screenings + Performances, TICKETS £5 (CLICK HERE)

4 – 6PM self-defense protection charm workshop, TICKETS £5 (CLICK HERE)

Love is co-opted into state and racial violence (don’t you love your country?).

Our care work is undervalued, unpaid, our caring a sign of weakness.

Our anger is unproductive, we are told by straights and academies and editors and families and men.

Join us for an evening of screenings and performances articulating the strange and vital and complex intersections of love, rage, care, and survival, especially from feminist, queer, and anti-racist perspectives.

Ayesha Tan-Jones will also be running a self-defense protection charm workshop in the afternoon using protective herbs, runes and chants to create a pepper spray protection amulet to guard you physically and psychically. Spaces are very limited and this will be separately ticketed.

The event is open to all women (trans, intersex and cis), and all those who experience oppression as women (including non-binary and gender non-conforming people). There will be no policing of this policy whatsoever by organisers, artists, or the audience – if you feel you fit this description, you are welcome.

Gender inclusion policies are difficult and imperfect. Eimar Walshe will be producing a zine reflecting on gender separatism and inclusion policies, which is the focus of their current research.

All funds from tickets to go to Sisters Uncut and S.W.E.A.T.
