SIATC *UPDATE* NOVEMBER 2012

SIATC *UPDATE* NOVEMBER

Dear Teacups,

Last month we saw some amazing feminist action from UK Feminista at their Feminist lobby of Parliament on 24th of October. Good news for womens rights and gay rights in the US and beyond with Obama being re-elected for a second term. Plus Katja, one of the Pussy Riot three, was released on probation in October. Also good news about the future of The Women’s Library. A new home has been found at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) the downside is they will not be able to maintain the building and will be vacating the purpose built library in Aldgate in 2013. Still it’s nice to have some good news and lots more positive feminist events and actions coming up this month and we all must keep standing up and speaking out to see real, positive progress happening.

This month don’t miss the Music & Liberation exhibition.This amazing collection of zines, photos, art and music of the UK Women’s Liberation Movement from 1970-1989 and has been touring the UK this Autumn. Its final stop is London at Space Station Sixty-Five in Oval. Come along to the free opening event on the 30th November with a performance from folk legend Frankie Armstrong and a talk from Sadista Sister Jude Alderson. The exhibition runs from the 1st of December until the 13th January with a closing event featuring a documentary about Gina Birch (The Raincoats) band; The Gluts. For more info about the archive check out the Women Liberation Music Archive website.

The  Reclaim the Night women-only national march against sexual violence and for gender equality, organised annually by the London Feminist Network is happening on Saturday 24th of November from 6pm. The Feminist Library are hosting a social on Saturday 24th at 2pm with bring and buy book-sale and refreshments. East London Fawcett Group will be marching together and hosting a info stall, so get in touch with them if you want to get involved.

This month there are also some fantastic feminist film festivals coming up; Underwire Fest from the 20th – 24th November and London Feminist Film Fest at Hackney Picturehouse from 29th November until 2nd December with a selection of Feminist films and documentaries. Underwire Festival boast a full week long programme of short films shortlisted for prizes in screenwriting, directing and producing.

Also in South London is a new Riot Grrl/queer night; Bloody Ice Cream on Saturday 1st December with an awesome lineup; Skinny Girl Diet, Ethical Debating Society and My Therapist Says Hot Damn.

Thank you to all involved and that came along in support it was a great night, great crowd and check out The Girls Are review which features some great photos (yip I just said great three times!!!). and hopefully we might have some more fem fronted gigs on the cards in the new year. In other Storm in a Teacup news we are itching to tell you about the project that has been brewing for a few months now for Lets Start a Pussy Riot. We hope to soon be able to reveal what we have planned alongside some amazing artists, musicians and collectives.

SIATC *UPDATE* JUNE 2011

Dear Teacups,

After a relatively quiet couple of months in teacup land all of a sudden things are getting busy again. This month sees some worthy activist causes to support including the “Eff off Hef” campaign lead by UK Feminista and Object against the re-opening of the Playboy club in London and the global SlutWalk movement that is literally gaining pace and coming to London town on the 11th of June. So this month not only do we see some great feminist campaigns grabbing national and international attention but  and some exciting feminist friendly performances and events coming up. Not only is there inspiring feminist activity happening on a bigger scale, its also your chance to get involved on a local level with the launch of the East London branch of the Fawcett Society on Thursday 9th of June. Recognising the feminist activity in East London, the Fawcett Society are setting up a local branch in reaction to this increased activity- so come along, join in the debate, help shape policies and get your voice heard.

Coming up this week; RUMPUS 1st Birthday Party with 6 rooms of fantastical fun with live music, Cinema, Caberet, DJs, Circus and art exhbition on Friday 10th of June. Verity Flecknell from Storm in a Teacup will be performing a blues set as well as her Johnny Cash songs and leading the RUMPUS Kazoo orchestra. Our lovely friends from Art Macabre will also be joining the celebrations.

The wonderful For Books Sake are bringing their Books and Blues evening to London town with readings, poetry and live music from Storm in a Teacup’s very own blues lady Verity Flecknell. Come along for a lovely afternoon of words, song and inspiration (More Details coming soon) on Sunday the 19th of June.

To top off all these performances Verity Flecknell will be performing at LATITUDE FESTIVAL in July, bringing her blues and kazoos to the Literary Arena as part of the YARN: Ten Stories about Smoking showcase.

Storm in a Teacup will be at the annual Womens Library Zine fest on Saturday the 25th of June. As well as the Storm in a Teacup zine (Issue 2) we are very excited to announce that we will be stocking the Women of the World festival collaborative zine, created from participants of the Women of the World zine workshop lead by Soupa Creative Network at the Southbank in March this year. With the help of inspiring zinesters like Magpie Magazine and Shebang Zine and all of the participants we have put together an inspiring zine and this will be your chance to get your hands on very limited copies. We will also be stocking a variety of feminist zines so If you have a zine that you would like us to stock at the Womens Library Zine fest please email: storminateacup2009@googlemail.com

SIATC *UPDATE* DECEMBER 2010

Dear Teacups,

What a truly phenomenal year we have had! Since our launch party in February this year, we have distributed our zine far and wide from the Womens library zine fair to the archives of the British library, we have DJ’ed at the George Tavern and shoulder to shoulder with JD Samson at Club Motherf*cker, put on events at our fave local; the Victoria and on the other end of the spectrum: The Southbank Centre– oh and not to forget we nearly killed ourselves helping to organise Ladyfest’s ten year anniversary celebration festival. In a nutshell we have worked with some of the most talented and influential feminist artists and organisers in London and we are extremely proud of the progress Storm in a Teacup collective has made over the past year. Enough gushing for now- we will save that for the January update and the 2010 year retrospective! Right now we are still feeling the gaping chasm that is the Ladyfest Ten hangover, trying to keep warm and scratching our collective brain trying to come up with some exciting plans and special treats for everyone in the New Year. Keep your eyes peeled for more open submissions, open meetings and lots of awesome cross-arts events.

Please visit our blog site to find out how to get involved in the collective and to keep up with the latest news. http://www.joinourteaparty.wordpress.com/
