Her Voice Rises: Artist Talk
February 11, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST
Free and open to the public.
“Feminist Arts Activism within the Global Movement to End Violence Against Women and Femmes.”
MAT, founded by Claudia Quiroga and Sandra Posadino in 2011, began developing a hybrid of performance and protest aimed to empower women and femmes through embodied practice and street actions in Buenos Aires. From Ni Una Menos (Not One Less) a transnational movement against femicides to Argentina’s national women’s strikes and recent efforts for reproductive rights legislation, MAT has been part of this substantial movement. MAT consists of artists, musicians, performers, student activists, teachers, housewives, and neighbors. In the artist talk, members of MAT will highlight recent actions in Argentina and invite dialogue on their strategies and international movement building. Antioch alumna, Hannah Priscilla Craig ‘17, who joined MAT for a cultural immersion cooperative education fellowship in 2016, will join them. In addition, Dawn Knickerbocker, founder of W.A.R.N. (Women of All Red Nations) Ohio, will discuss intersections with the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) movement here in North America.
