LETS START A PUSSY RIOT

Loud, controversial, fearless — Pussy Riot undoubtedly ushered in a new era of feminism and political freedom with their protest acts.

The dialogue so explosively ignited by Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich continues in the book Let’s Start A Pussy Riot. Exclusively created in collaboration with the band, this publication brings together artists, writers and poets to explore feminism, LGBT rights, the power of collaboration, the role art plays in activism, women’s rights, and freedom of speech through the personal voices of Judy Chicago, Yoko Ono, Antony Hegarty, Kim Gordon, and many more.

One Billion Rising UK | 14 Feb 2013

OBR-POSTER_17x22red-page-001

OBR UK Art Festival | 14th Feb 2013


​One Billion Rising,
the new initiative of Eve Ensler, Tony Award winning author of the Vagina Monologues, is a campaign that seeks to end violence towards women and girls. OBR UK Art Festival brings together artists, performers, dancers, poets and playwrights, in unity against violence. Once we are aware of something we can begin to change it.

The 14th of February 2013 will mark the 15th anniversary of V-day, Eve Ensler’s foundation to help women victims of violence around the world. One Billion Rising celebrates that day making a stand against violence towards women, which is why this year we are reaching out to as many organizations as we can. This year we will be working with museums and galleries across the nation, putting on exhibitions that highlight the issues at stake.

​We will be having dance parties in institutions, and cultural centers in unity against violence. Working with established seminal artists such as Judy Chicago, as well as emerging talent OBR UK Art Festival will be putting on exhibitions, film screenings and a series of talks, using art and culture to help us rethink our social structures. JOIN US!


One Billion Rising, the new initiative of Eve Ensler, Tony Award winning author of the Vagina Monologues, is a global campaign, a grassroots movement that from Lima, to Paris, New Delhi to Kinshasa, Manila, to Bahrain is clamoring, loud and clear, for the end of violence towards women and girls. On February 14th, 2013, One Billion women and the men who love them will rise up on the planet, joining Eve Ensler and the activists of her foundation V-Day to strike, dance, shake the world and shift the energy, empower women and girls and break the cycle of violence.

Art has long been a vehicle of protest and an agent of change. Art is the most powerful the most direct and visceral way of speaking to people across boarders, and barriers. Art Motivates, art empowers, art opens people minds creating new ways of thinking. This is why I have wanted the OBR UK Art Festival as part of the campaign to bring together artists, performers, dancers, poets, playwrights, art lovers and the public in unity against violence. Once we are aware of something we can begin to change it.

Nadja Romain, Chair OBR UK Art Festival

Journey starts from the dress which almost unable her to move to the ultra mini black dress. All the dresses in between are a diary of the transformation. Each creation is shorter and braver; the white is gradually taken over the black. et just because dresses are lighter and smaller doesn’t mean ANNA has more freedom in them. Gradually the weight of the fabric taken from her body is added to the weight on her head. ANNA won’t ever become free…

SHATTERJAPAN (www.facebook.com/SHATTERJAPAN) and POPULAR (www.facebook.com/populargroup) present this special non-profit event.

On 21 February 2012, members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot performed a “punk prayer” in a Moscow church for which they were arrested, detained for several months and eventually sentenced on 17 August 2012 to 2 years imprisonment. With two of the three members remaining imprisoned (Nadezhda “Nadya” Tolokonnikova and Maria “Masha“ Alyokhina), SHATTERJAPAN and POPULAR have collaborated to bring you a whole evening of entertainment, including people from the international music, film and political worlds, to commemorate the 1 year anniversary of the punk prayer performance and to celebrate freedom of expression.

=========

LIVE BANDS:

MIDAS FALL(www.midasfall.com)
Led by the hauntingly melancholic vocals of Elizabeth Heaton, Edinburgh-born and Manchester-based Midas Fall have sculpted a distinctive sound, combining elements of electronica and post-rock to create taut, shimmering soundscapes. Their 2010 debut LP “Eleven. Return and Revert” enjoyed critical acclaim internationally, with the opening track featured on the BBC drama “Lip Service.” This year sees the release of their long-awaited second album “Wilderness” on the eclectic Monotreme Records label

CHVRCHES (www.facebook.com/CHVRCHES)

We will screen a clip of the exclusive footage at this event.

SIATC *UPDATE* DECEMBER 2012

Dear Teacups,

*Seasons Greetings and Best Wishes for the New Year!*

2012 has been an action packed year full of feminist activism, and Women’s equality and LBGTQ rights have increasingly become the frontline for discussion and debate in our evolving and changing society – from the US elections, to the Church of England; it’s very exciting times and feminism has been more relevant than ever. This year has also seen Pussy Riot raise the bar for feminist activism in the arts, reminding us to hold onto the freedom of expression that sometimes we take for granted, and inspired us all to remember the power of politics in our art, and we have responded with art, collaborative projects, protest and events that have shown the power of feminist action on a global scale.

Thanks to all that have been involved and those of you who came along to our events like the “Pussy Riot Fundraiser” presented by Storm in a Teacup alongside; Not So Popular & Girls Get Busy at The Shacklewell Arms in April, our “Herstory” Storytelling event on Hampstead Heath presented alongside London Dreamtime in August and The Shondes, The Tuts and Amity show presented by SIATC alongside The Girls Are at The Lexington in October.

SIATC *UPDATE* JULY 2012

SIATC *UPDATE* JULY 2012

Dear Teacups,

First up big apologies for the no-show of the June update (and the slight lateness of this July update) various difficult personal matters prevented me from getting it published in time. Hey-ho and on we go- here we are again for another bumper July update full of wonderful feminist friendly events the ‘big smoke’ has to offer. Not only is it World Pride this coming weekend, it’s also the Fattylympics! And out of town we must not forget to mention Bristol Ladyfest 2012, with an amazing lineup of music, comedy, film and workshops.

If you’re as sick as I am about hearing about the Olympics, or even sick of people saying they are sick of the Olympics then trot on down to the Fattylympics happening this Saturday 7th of July.

SIATC *UPDATE* MAY 2012

Dear Teacups,

First of all a HUGE thank you to everyone who came down to show their support at the Free Pussy Riot Fundraiser @ The Shacklewell Arms on the 23rd of April! We raised £370.00 for the Pussy Riot grrls. If you didn’t make it to our event and would like to donate to the cause please visit the Free Pussy Riot website. Storm in a Teacup, Girls Get Busy and Not So Popular are working on a collaborative zine to continue to raise funds and awareness of the Free Pussy Riot campaign. Keep your eyes peeled for more news about this soon.

Not So Popular interviewed Viv Albertine (The Slits), watch the interview here where Viv talks about Pussy Riot and Feminism.

Another great video from the event; Viv Albertine performing “Don’t Believe in Love”

 

We were really upset to hear that the UK’s finest Women’s archive The Women’s Library is under threat.  The library, home to the largest collection of women’s writing in Europe, will see its opening hours slashed if it can’t secure extra funds by the end of the year. This could mean if they can’t rehome, find a sponsor or secure a huge amount of funding they may only be able to open one day per week from December 2012. Help save The Women’s library by spreading the word and SIGN THIS PETITION NOW!

One of our alltime favourite magaZINEs Magpie Mag Issue 5 has just become available, and it includes an interview with me, where I talk about Storm in a Teacup, folk and feminism – it’s a beautiful publication that also includes a compilation CD, to get your hands on a copy visit the Magpie Magazine website. A little quote from the interview; “People are walking up to the fact that they shouldn’t wait around for things to change or for people in power to change them, we need to stand up, speak out and make positive change happen ourselves”.

The Great East London Art Audit continues this month on Saturday 12th of May at the TATE modern! Find out how to get involved with the East London Fawcett Group’s campaign to find out the truth about representation of women in the art world.
