Where We Stumble: Dismantling Rape Sub-Culture

Join us for a two-day gathering on March 28th & 29th, 2015, with panel discussions, zine assembly, small group conversation, and performances. WWS is a participant-generated discussion guided by panelists and facilitators in an experimenting effort to address how to build safety and agency within our community.

This will be an opportunity to define rape culture beyond its most explicit definitions and form a common language around what we see and experience as the complex paradigm of rape subculture, existing beneath the surfaces of our daily interactions. By listing the means in which we both bear witness and perpetuate rape subculture and realizing the ramifications of a disrespected body, we will collectively work toward shaping our awareness and speech, and as a corollary, our behaviors and artistic practices, toward a positive shift within our respective social realities.

In order to better facilitate this gathering we're asking participants to register using the form below by March 15th, 2015. Registration is free and open to anyone.
