Symposium: Lesbian ARTivismes in the Age of Globalization

Posted on Saturday, August 20, 2016

On September 22 to 24, 2016, will take place a symposium entitled “Lesbian ARTivismes in the Age of Globalization” at the University of Ottawa.

This international, bilingual and interdisciplinary event will bring together over thirty artists, activists and researchers from a dozen countries in an accessible space.

In an era when the superficiality of images takes precedence over social justice, art becomes a possible means of intervention with which to reach, sensitize and call for action. This approach is used by many lesbians (women-who-love-women, lesbian and queer-identified women, intersex, etc.) everywhere on the planet. Working in

the shadows, like fireflies, they shed a little light on the surrounding darkness. It will address the following question: how, why and in which struggles they currently invest? 

We hope to bring to light your concerns or your social projects and encourage dialogue and connections between all guest speakers and the public.
