July 20 on FM: ‘Miss Danger’ street art, Room to Read + Feminist Teacher

Hosted by Celina Alvarez and Christene Kings

What is street art and how has it evolved? Rachel Joelson, co-owner of LAB ART Los Angeles and KH No.7, artist and curator of “Miss Danger on the Loose” talk to us about the first-ever exhibition to shine a spotlight on female street artists.   LAB ART is the nation’s largest art gallery dedicated to street art and has been referred to as a “mini-MOCA”.  The exhibit brings together a broad range of styles of up and coming female street artists.

And, Emily Leys helps us understand how Room To Read’s Girls Education Program is  educating and empowering girls in eight countries. The program targets girls in lower secondary school at risk of dropping out, and helps ensure that they can complete school with the skills they need to succeed. By using a long-term, holistic and relevant approach, the staff works to understand and address the individual needs and unique challenges affecting girls.

Then Ileana Jiménez joins shows the show to talk about feminist education for high school students. Her blog Feminist Teacher “intends to expand the circle of discussion to educators in the k-12 sector who consider their teaching practices to be feminist in design and implementation.” The goal? To make feminist educators “visible to each other and to the larger world of educators, as we move forward with our important work.”

That’s Wednesday, July 20th at 7pm.  This Is What Feminism Sounds Like!

    Check out on facebook the artshow called Ladyfest IE (Inland Empire). Two young Riverside feminists are putting it on in August. This is their second year and they are doing a fabulous job. The artists are all feminist women artists and performers.
