***Due to extenuating circumstances, we regret to inform you that the workshop Tu n'es pas féministe is cancelled. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your interest.***
Tu n'es pas féministe is a 2-hour guide in workshop form that explores how we define our feminism in ways that don't further perpetuate injustice, disenfranchisement, and overall annoyance in the lives of queer and trans folk, women, and Black and brown people. As a group, we'll examine the ways white feminism socializes us to reproduce white supremacy and misogyny under the guise of female empowerment and understanding, exploring practical tips and tricks for anti-assholery in the feminist movement.
The workshop will take place in English, with whispered French translation available.
*Space is limited to 25 participants. Reserve your spot in advance by sending an e-mail with your name and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org with “September 19-McKensie Mack” in the subject line by September 18, 2018.*
Bold, pragmatic, and unpredictable McKensie Mack is a performance artist leveraging the reach of pop culture and satire to envision a world without white supremacy and genderphobia. Mack is an anti-oppression consultant and researcher most recently appointed Director of the global campaign Art+Feminism, an initiative established to combat gender inequity on Wikipedia. Their body of work challenges the ways we marginalize Black and brown people, women, and queer and trans folks as a "normal" part of our everyday lives using the examination of history and the absurdity of normalized implicit and explicit biases to get people to confront the discomfort that comes with having the difficult conversation. Born and raised in Chicago, with a Southern family originally hailing from Mississippi, Mack is currently based in South Africa. They have been recognized by The Guardian, NY Times, and Refinery29.
