Carnival of feminist cultural activism

Ok, I'd prefer that if you are in the UK next March, you come to the Rebranding Feminism conference in London.  But if art is more your thing, this might be for you.

Centre for Women's Studies, University of York, UK.

3-5 March 2011
We welcome proposals for a three-day conference and festival of academic papers, presentations, performance, exhibitions & workshops.
We ask: can feminist art* change the world and, if so, how?

and we invite responses from activists, artists and academics.
*street theatre :: poetry :: music :: knitting :: zines :: digital fiction :: podcasts :: dance :: performance :: painting :: puppetry :: frockmaking weaving :: gardening :: cooking :: sketches :: pottery :: blogs :: song :: cartoons :: writing :: sculpture :: posters :: comics :: tweeting :: and so on
The event is designed to generate action as well as debate, and to inspire, celebrate & challenge understandings of women, grassroots art & politics.
Please send 300-word proposals for papers, panels, exhibitions, workshops and performances plus a 50-word biography, by 31 October 2010 to:
