ladyfest newcastle 2006
Ladyfest Newcastle will be 2 whole days and nights of incredible music, art, photography, spoken word poetry, performance art and workshops – all taking place over a weekend in September 2006.
Most festivals are totally male-dominated; Ladyfest is a chance to redress the balance.
With Ladyfest Newcastle we want to bring together some of the AMAZING CREATIVE TALENT that we know is out there but not getting the attention it deserves. We want people to LEARN NEW SKILLS in workshops – drumming, knitting, how to change the world with a zine. We want to CHALLENGE PEOPLE'S PERCEPTION of what feminism is. And, quite frankly, We want to put on some BRILLIANT GIGS.
Most of all, we want people to come away from Ladyfest Newcastle TOTALLY FIRED UP about everything they've heard and seen, and start creating for themselves.
GET INVOLVED! WE'RE LOOKING FOR CREATIVE PEOPLE TO TAKE PART IN LADYFEST NEWCASTLE!
Whether you're a musician, a writer, an artist, in a theatre group or doing nothing else that's at all creative, we'd love to have you involved.
As well as performers, we're looking for people to take workshops – do you have a particular skill that you'd like to share or are you an expert in something we could have a discussion on? Don't be shy, get in touch and let us know!
And finally – we want Ladyfest Newcastle to be a real community event, helping individuals and small groups with what they're already doing.
So if you write a zine or make stuff to sell, let us know and we'll see if we can help you out.
