Festival – After the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, it seems important to encourage a discussion and educate people surrounding these topics. Montreal will be hosting a new festival, “Festivulve”, which aims to educate and celebrate all things vulvas ! They will offer concrete resources and information through the use of art, humour and panel discussions. The festival aims to inform people on sexuality and gender in a safe and creative environment. The festival will be a new way for Montrealers to show solidarity in times of need as well as a way to learn and educate ourselves.
“Festivulve” will offer conferences and panel discussions about sexuality and gender, as well as performances such as slam poetry, dance, drama, singing, projections and much more. There will also be an exhibition on vulvas and everything you should know about them as well as various organisations offering useful information you might not know. The festival will be giving out 50% of their profits to an organisation which supports women’s bodies. Tickets for the “Festivulve” event are sold at 25$ for the entire week-end pass and 15.95$ per day (tax included). To purchase your tickets now, click here before they sell out. The festival will take place at the Loft Hotel situated a few minutes away from Sherbrooke metro on the 9th and 10th of June. For more information, click here to access the official Facebook event.
