Friday March 8th: International Women’s Day. On this day, we celebrate everything that feminist movements around the world have achieved. We also look forward, imagining what a more feminist future would look like. The day is celebrated at various locations. One of the main events is the Mama Cash Feminist Festival at the Stedelijk Museum.
Mama Cash Feminist Festival
With the Feminist Festival Mama Cash wants to celebrate feminist artist and activist by giving them a platform. By imagining what is possible, artist and activists are important in bringing change. By coming together during this festival the organizers want to protest against the status quo using art, music and performances. And it is also an opportunity to celebrate the work of female artists.
What to expect during this festival? This is part of the program:
- Gallery Talks with artists Raquel van Haver and Jacqueline de Jong;
- Brazilian activists and artists Rede Nami;
- Media disruptors Clarice Gargard and Hasna el Maroudi
- Blikopeners a group of young open-minded artists
- Special guided tours through the museum showing the art works from a feminist perspective;
The first International Women’s Day in 1911 was a protest – and today, it still is. But it’s a celebration, too. You can by tickets for the Mama Cash Festival via their website. All activities on March 8th throughout Amsterdam and the rest of The Netherlands can be found here (Dutch only).
