First Friday Lecture with Amy Karlinsky

Finding the female voice, making space, celebrating the female body, creating independent thinkers, rewriting ritual, reflecting on and asserting needs are aspects of feminist pedagogy.

Join art educator Amy Karlinsky, on Friday May 6, from noon to 1:00 pm at MAWA, 
611 Main Street, as she discusses strategies and looks at projects undertaken with female students and female artists at a university, the public school system, a cultural art centre, an adult women’s group and a women’s shelter.
