Yeah, That's What She Said is a series of women-lead events that build relationships and experiences through the arts and activism.
YTWSS centers art and workshops by working class and poor women, women of color, immigrant women, trans women and queer women. We are collectively self-organized and largely funded by community support.
YTWSS 2017: Motherland
Yeah, That’s What She Said is back for its fourth year! Taking place at Knockdown Center, YTWSS*2017's is centered on the theme of MOTHERLAND.
Our art show, performances, and workshops collectively addresses this complicated and pertinent theme, as we defend, seek, and explore our own motherlands. This may include work related to environmental justice, places of origin, family and chosen family, reproductive justice and bodily autonomy, borders, ancestry and lineage, and borders, nationalism, and colonialism.
$10 - $15 Sliding scale entrance, no one turned away for lack of funds.
As YTWSS is a collective effort to support women and femmes, and to work against white patriarchal systems, we ask for $20 donation from visitors identifying as white heterosexual cis men
