Here’s two reposts from remember who you are about some awesome projects in the make:

born in flames: the publication

Wow! Jenny Woolworth’s Women In Punk Blog just brought me the news of the ‘comic book’ version of the film Born In Flames that’s being made by Kaisa Lassinaro.
It looks all sorts of amazing!!
They need financial help to get it published though, so you can pre-order and learn more about the project here:
They’re looking to raise £3,727 by 15 April 2011, in order to get the book printed by June 2011

Attention all Feminists that are Artists! Performers! Writers! Activists!

We are looking for submissions for our art show….
As women we create and claim our own challenging art. Send us questioning and incisive women’s art, feminist art, images of how you critically see the world; conceptual art; dialogues about feminist art; art critiquing patriarchy. (Haven’t you, like us, seen enough sexualised images of women?)

I-SHO will present a exciting feminist gaze, as we are all formed by the images we create as well as those we consume.

73 Women are women artists using all art media to address issues affecting women and girls worldwide.

I’S, SHES, HERS AND OURS will be in Stoke Newington (London, UK) during JULY 2011

Deadline for submission is 5pm, 4th April 2011.
Please send up to 3 JPG images Under 1MG with a short statement (100 wordsmax), saying why your work is feminist/ challenging the notions of gender/identity and 100 words about you/as artist.
