Abstract: 

#FierceVoices: Ignite! Young Women Making Media, an event organized by Women Transforming Cities and Rabble.ca to inspire, amplify and celebrate young women’s voices through media.

#FierceVoices: Ignite! Young Women Making Media claims space for young women in media. It focuses on both analyzing representation in media and building capacity for young women to create their own voices and media platforms. The event aimed to especially highlight marginalized voices, voices that are silenced in mainstream media.

Romila Barryman, creator of Textbook & Anne Theriault, blogger at The Belle Jar, with an opening by Musqueam First Nation activist, Audrey Siegl.

Panelists include Kathryn Gwun-Yeen Lennon, poet and spoken word artist, Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers, filmmaker, writer, and actor, Kim Villagante (K!mmortal), multi-dimensional artist: visual arts, singing, emceeing, poetry, and acting.

Performances by K!mmortal, Kathryn Gwun-Yeen Lennon and Youth for a Change.

This is a lesbian, queer, and trans* inclusive event. We acknowledge that this event takes place on unceded Coast Salish lands.
