Weaving visions of R*Evolution A Femme Fraktale Soli-Fest in collaboration with the international Femme Network
Femme Fraktale is an international diverse group of people dreaming a common future. We do so by understanding the past and by choosing to fully be in the present.
We would like to share the following questions; What does it mean to work away from a consolidated patriarchal colonialist system? How did/does feminism participate to evolution? How has feminist resistance impacted on many cultures and how does it reflect today?
One of our points of view related to R*Evolution: We believe that in order for humanity to evolve changes have to be made, not only in terms of equality between all people, but also reclaiming our connection to nature, extending ourselves beyond systematic barriers.
Just as our collective’s identity, fractals generate themselves without an agenda or hidden intention, they simply exist in all their beauty and complexity, facing physical obstacles, chance and inevitability. The concept of “border” does not exist in nature. Everything in the universe is constantly moving ; changing and evolving in another form. Yet in our constructed reality, oppressed minorities still have to fight for their rights to exist and move freely through the earth. We refute the concept of minority, because everyone exists with diverse shapes, colours, beliefs and fluid sexualities.
Femme movement is expanding rapidly. The common goal of these collectives is to connect, expand, subvert borders and binary identities as recursive power archetypes . We want to transform historically consolidated concepts that have driven us away from nature and caused us to forget how to truly understand each other.
How can we do this together through sharing our collective and individual knowledge?
The Motivation for the benefit festival is to support a project initiated by Femme Brutal & Femme Scandal:
A SOCIO-CULTURAL AND ARTISTIC PROJECT BETWEEN MAGHREBIN & EUROPEAN WOMEN IN MOROCCO in 2020.
The struggle for gender equality evolves only through the commitment and perseverance of world social movements and grows continuously taking on multiple forms.
The European underground scene comprises the growing presence of women’s artistic collectives contributing to anti-sexism, through the creation of festivals: interactive self-managed spaces of independent cooperation, reflection and free expression in order to support art and culture.
Although different in terms of content and aesthetics, the various festivals are influenced by each other, consolidating over the years of networking among the collectives thanks to the precious collaboration of the people who have taken part in it.
The idea of creating a similar event in Morocco, in which art and culture are the means of communication, understanding, interaction and critical consciousness, derives from the union of the independent collectives.
If you feel a connection to the concept and want to support the cause of this Soli- Fest, please respond through your creative mediums. The program can include lectures, workshops, an exhibition, performances, concerts and live audio/visual installations.
We offer each artist: drinks, meals and our technical assistance. No travel expenses at this point, but we can host some distant travelers in our humble fraktale homes. Collaborations with men are more then welcome as long as they support our spirit, beliefs and aims.
The Deadline for application is November 1 st , 2018 . Please send submissions with your idea and your background to firstname.lastname@example.org WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SHARING OUR COLLECTIVE VISION WITH YOU.
