The Night Library: Salvage The Bones

Get ready for the second meeting of the Cauldron’s feminist bookclub: The Night Library.

Up next is Jesmyn Ward’s Salvage the Bones, winner of the National Book Award. This gritty but tender novel is about family and poverty in the days leading up to Hurricane Katrina.

As the twelve days that make up the novel's framework yield to their dramatic conclusion, this unforgettable family pulls itself up to face another day. A big-hearted novel about familial love and community against all odds, and a wrenching look at the lonesome, brutal, and restrictive realities of rural poverty, Salvage the Bones is muscled with poetry, revelatory, and real.

More details to come.

ANGRY ASIAN GIRLS is excited to announce that we will be hosting an interactive poetry workshop at NYCAASC 2019.

Unfinished Conversation: Poetry and Discourse
In the Asian Pacific American community, rage is often suppressed and political discussions, silenced. When it comes to combating inter-passivity, it is important to recognize the role our discourses embrace and how they operationalize in social spaces. Historically, immigrants on Angel island have used poetry as a survival strategy and Chinese women have used poetry as a mechanism by which they rewrite a history that has “unremembered” them. This workshop seeks to provide a safe space in which students can translate rage by creating and using slam poetry to change the scope in which Asian Pacific Americans navigate the world, bridging the gap between theory and praxis.

Event is open to the public. See you there!

Cultivating a Creative Ecosystem to Thrive in Boston

Connect with creatives. Hear stories of personal experience. Discuss how to cultivate an ecosystem that empowers creative collaboration.

Statistically, Boston is young and it is female. Yet, in an already underrepresented creative industry in Boston, it is difficult to find a collective voice or space to share ideas, struggles, and accomplishments. This panel, organized and led by Girl Magic Meets, intends to dig into this idea and spark thoughtful discussion among womxn in creative roles who are forging the way for themselves and other creatives to thrive in Boston. How can we start thinking of the creative industry as a creative ecosystem, where community and interaction can be fostered? Discussion will revolve around building the groundwork necessary to create an ecosystem in Boston and what platforms can womxn use to share, build, and support each other. Panelists are Boston-based womxn creatives and collectives.

 


This event is hosted by Girl Magic Meets, Tier Zero Agency, and WeWork.

WeWork is a community of creators. We transform buildings into collaborative workspaces. Our mission is to help companies grow by providing them with not just beautiful space but benefits, amenities, and community they need to focus on their business, all on very flexible terms. We currently have over 300,000 members working out of our communities worldwide, and over 20,000 members here in Boston.

#stitchers: Artist Talk with Courtney Sanborn

Please join us for a talk with one of the artists of the #stitchers exhibition! Artist Courtney Sanborn will discuss her process and the meaning behind her figurative embroideries.

Gallery 263 is excited to present our latest Exhibition Proposal Series show, #stitchers. This exhibition features six women artists from around the world who met on the social media platform Instagram. In their practices, the artists investigate what it means to elevate the traditional medium of hand embroidery in the context of the fine arts community, and how their art can be accessible and inspire others on social media. Through the exploration of incorporating multimedia elements into their embroidery and the act of depicting deeply personal narratives — such as gender assumptions, family stories, and more — these artists are challenging the notion of embroidery as a pastime craft.

Creative Business Coaching with Maggie Battista

After The Fresh Collective’s last event, one of the most requested workshops was creative business coaching. You asked, we answered! On two Friday mornings in March, Maggie Battista will host two Creative Business Coaching Sessions, for up to 10 participants. Each session includes a light 30-minute meal.

Session 1: March 22, 10am-1pm
Session 2: March 29, 10am-1pm

During each session, five of you (plus Maggie!) will spend 3 hours getting to the heart of your business matters to discuss the best path for you. If you need a little push to transition into a new career, start a new business, or reinvigorate a project you’re working on right now, this collaborative group session with Maggie may be exactly what you need to make it happen. You’ll get access to Maggie’s resources, her decades of start-up experience, and her generous spirit.

Together, you may conceptualize your dreams, develop actions toward your goals, and understand and tackle obstacles. In this group session, we'll all participate and support each other, with Maggie's guidance.

These group sessions are conducted in person and are non-refundable and non-transferrable. We do reserve the right to cancel if we don't fill the sessions and in that case, a full refund will be issued to anyone who bought tickets. When signing up, please indicate whether you prefer the 22nd (session 1) or 29th (session 2).

How to Smash Garlic and the Patriarchy Launch Party

Join GRLSQUASH + Overseasoned in celebrating the launch of our collaborative publication, How to Smash Garlic and the Patriarchy! We've partnered with Tanám and Rebel Rebel, both Bow Market-based spaces featured in How to Smash, to bring the pages to life (and to give you some yummy snacks + drinks). Your ticket to the event gets you a copy of How to Smash Garlic and the Patriarchy, one drink + snacks at Tanám, and one drink at Rebel Rebel. 

7:00-9:00 Snacks* + drinks** at Tanám 
9:00-11:00 Drinks** at Rebel Rebel

*All Tanám snacks will be vegetarian-friendly. 
**Your purchase of a ticket for this event gets you one free drink ticket at each location, but more drinks will be available for purchase if you're interested! 


About the publication: How to Smash Garlic and the Patriarchy is a collaborative publication between GRLSQUASH and Overseasoned dreamed up over coffee and a shared mission to shout from the rooftops about all the amazing womxn in the Boston food + beverage scene. How to Smash is filled to the brim with the who, what, when, where (and wear), + why (but do we really need to tell you why?) of Boston womxn smashing garlic + the patriarchy. Inside you’ll find a recipe for Your Very Own Feminist Cake, a jam-packed Day in the Life of the founder of a womxn’s food organization that’ll leave you wondering if she’s found the secret to time travel, a map for where to smash the patriarchy in Boston’s restaurants, retail, and other food-centric spaces, and more. We can’t wait to share this truly smashing publication with you!

About Tanám: While Tanám focuses on Filipino American cuisine and craft cocktails, our priority is encouraging connection and dialogue. We weave coursed dining into our narratives, often collaborating with artists to present stories that don't often get told, shared by the people who live those stories. All the while, racial equity, labor justice, and environmental justice guide our decisions as a QPOC-majority owned worker-cooperative.

About Rebel Rebel: Rebel Rebel is a no-rules natural wine bar in Somerville's Bow Market. We give a fuck (about wine and about you). We believe a wine bar can be a place for the community to engage, grow, and communicate. We also believe in the power of natural wine to bring us back to the foundations of our connection to farmers, to women, and to the planet. Think that sounds like a bunch of woo-woo bullshit? Come hang out and let us show you what we do.


Full list of contributors and features: Amy Larson, Brienne Allan, Covet, Dahlia Snaiderman, Ella Rinaldo, Elle Dioguardi, Elle Scott, Ellie Tiglao, Emma Ruff, Erin Robertson, Frankie Concepcion, Haley Fortier, Irene Li, Jess Graham, Joanie Walker, Julia Emiliani, Karen Akunowicz, Kelsey Munger, Kit Collins, Kyisha Davenport, Lauren Friel, Leigh Belanger, Liz Sux, Lucia Austria Patrick, Madison Trapkin, Maggie Batista, Nicole Fichera, Paridaez, Practice Space, Rita Tinega, Sam Dolph, Spaceus, Suhayl Ramirez, The Fresh Collective, Tiffany Mallery, Tracy Chang, and We Thieves.
