Call Out

Calling all women who are aspiring community leaders, practicing artists, activists, creative types and trouble makers with a passion for social justice

Lilla is organising a weekend creativity workshop for women coinciding with International Women’s Day in March 2009. Due to be held from the 7th to the 8th of March, this workshop will bring together a group of practising and emerging musicians, artists, writers and other creative storytellers to explore the connections between social justice and creative expression. The range of creative works initiated at this event will be developed over a few months culminating in an exhibition in November 2009. Currently we are seeking participants, creative mentors, and volunteers.

Our Mantra

"If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. If you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together."
