ASU hosts this two-day arts-focused event in commemoration of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

About this event

On November 19, in the Student Pavilion's Senita Ballroom C, we'll screen a short documentary, entitled M O R A D A, about the feminist occupation of a federal building in Mexico that began in 2020. This will be followed by a presentation of audiovisual testimonials from participants from the occupation and a conversation with the audience. We will then be joined virtually by a feminist hip hop and artivist collective, Batallones Femeninos, for a concert and freestyle/rap circle.

On November 20, on the third floor of the Student Pavilion, we'll host a brief presentation about feminism at the intersection of graphic art and music with a participatory element of screen printing and art creation.

Throughout the two days of the event, there will be an art installation called “The Feeling of Safeness” which invites women-identified and non-binary participants to reflect and share what is necessary for them to feel safer on ASU's campuses.
