Guest Speaker, brochure, and schedule, oh my!

Hopefully everyone has had a chance to check out our exciting FemFest 2013: Revelation & Revolution lineup. If you want to schedule your time in advance, here is the breakdown of the week’s performances, readings, and workshops. The full brochure is also now available. So many wonderful things to see! What are you the most excited for?

We are also very excited to announce our guest artist for FemFest 2013. She was off in Berlin and so was confirmed after the brochure went to print, but we couldn’t be happier to welcome Djanet Sears to Winnipeg to conduct a masterclass for playwrights, read from her work and speak at the University of Winnipeg. She is a Governor General’s Literary Award winner for Harlem Duet and one of the leading African Canadian writers for the stage. She is an award-winning director, and has several acting nominations to her credit for both stage and screen. Her own work explores the passionately complex spaces where race and gender intersect. Djanet is one of the driving forces behind the AfriCanadian Playwrights’ Conference Festival, a celebration and examination of African diasporic writing for the stage in Canada. Book the dates off in your calendar now to be sure you do not miss out!
