November 2014

On Tuesday, November 18, 2014, 180 WOMEN had its inaugural event at a special performance of NSFW by Lucy Kirkwood. Before the performance, Ilene Sova from the Feminist Art Conference introduced members to our Lobby Exhibit, Repossessing Beauty, curated by the Feminist Art Conference and featuring ruminations on language, imaging and the politicized body. After the performance, members attended our panel discussion, Writing from Within, featuring some of Toronto’s most dynamic journalistic voices in a conversation about navigating media landscapes, preserving integrity and doing what you love for people you hate. Piola sponsored and catered the event.
