I have a big box of stuffed toys I want to give away. After volunteering at an op shop and seeing most of the toys they recieve get put straight into the bin, I'd rather give them to somewhere that won't just throw them away.

Idealy, I'd like to pass them onto a women's shelter, but I have no contact details for one.

Does anyone know of a shelter that could take them?

Please email asap at purrdence at the hotmail place or call on 0434858511.

This is (Not) Craft [Jan. 14th, 2007|07:26 pm]

This is (Not) Craft: Works of Beauty and Meaning

here is the plan:
I want to organise an exhibition of craft inspired art works, or rather, art work that utilise media traditionally dismissed as craft. I am thinking collage, stamping, textile, beading and jewelery, wearable art, paper craft etc. I am thinking doing it as the first kanguerilla project, inviting each kanguerilla girl to contribute up to 4 works in the exhibition. Works are to be in an art/craft medium and must also carry an artistic/political meaning i.e. they must attempt to say something.

I will organise the gallery space (after feb) and it is my intention that the exhibition be held in a designated gallery space. I know there are some really good non gallery exhibition spaces, particularly cafes ect, but for this project it is important to display the works in a gallery to highlight that they are intended as works of art. I am thinking of a small commercial gallery and I would like to have all works for sale. It is also part of my grand scheme to enlist the help of someone to help us price our works, as I know this is one area in which women often lack confidence.

I am thinking the middle of the year, but it will be dependent on gallery space availability. So at the moment what I am looking for are expressions of interest.

Food for thought.

Women, suffering as a means to existence and all the things we convince ourselves we need to do/see/think/feel.

Really quite confronting and scary....

call for sticker ideas [Sep. 12th, 2006|07:59 pm]

As part of the KanguerillaGirls (forthcoming) website I want to include a section of downloadable stickers. I'll design them, then post them in PDF format so that people can download them and print them on to plain sticky paper, then stick them wherever instant activism is needed.

Anyone have any slogans, quotes or other relevant text they would like to see included?

KanguerillaGirls was inspired by the wonderful guerrilla girls who run fantastic, fun, yet important feminist campaigns in America. In the guerrilla girls FAQ they answer the question "how do I become a guerrilla girl?" by saying that you don't. You start your own thing.

"...we ask that you use us as a model: think up your own name and your own outrageous identity and put up a couple of posters about an issue that is important to you. If it works, do it again. If it doesn't, do it again anyway."

So here we are, in Australia, doing our own feminist activist thing.
